JAG Featured Member Artist
Shattered car parts, defunct technology, miscellaneous trash and carefully curated treasures are the tools that Jacksonville based artist Wendy Sullivan uses to create her abstract assemblages. Utilizing form, pattern, and repetition to lay out her compositions, she then paints the assemblage white to unify the elements. Overpainting in tonal black gives the finished pieces the appearance of a charcoal sketch.
Wendy’s work is fueled by the themes of accumulation and symbology. “Working with things that people have lost or discarded, items that have been broken and altered by the environment or held as inexplicable treasures I try to bring out the message that these objects contain”.
A member of the Jacksonville Art Guild, the Jacksonville Society of Mixed Media Artists, the Art Guild of Orange Park, and FemArt, Wendy has exhibited in the galleries at Thrasher Horne, the Larimer Art Center, the Nathan Wilson Center for the Arts at FSCJ, and the Jewish Community Alliance. In addition, Wendy’s art has been a part of the following exhibits: the Jax Makerspace exhibition “Reclaimed: Life Beyond The Landfill”, the Haskell Gallery at JIA as a part of the “Women Artists, Visual Experiences” exhibit, the Atrium Gallery at MOCA as a part of Imagination Squared in 2011 and will again be participating in Imagination Squared 2021.
