Jeanne Brasile

Jeanne Brasile is an artist and curator, working in the New York metropolitan area. Her current body of work consists of paper wall sculptures usually presented on canvas. She is particularly interested in the materiality of paper – its tactility, form and structure. The artwork references abstracted imagery of natural systems such as cell structures, eddies, tornadoes, ocean currents and similar phenomena. The shapes are simultaneously evocative of smaller life forms such as viruses, seashells or fiddleheads. She envisions both the studio and gallery as laboratories for learning. Currently the Director at Seton Hall University’s Walsh Gallery, Jeanne curates two to three shows each year. Her dual role as artist/curator enables her to approach curating and art-making from a unique perspective – each role informing and shaping the other.
