In the Studio with NYSS Instructor Jenny Lynn McNutt
August 10, 2021 · Faculty
NYSS Instructor Jenny Lynn McNutt shares ceramic sculpture created at Taoxichuan International Studio, Jingdezhen, China, at EKWC in The Netherlands and in Brooklyn, New York.
“The practice of painting and sculpting is both a reckoning with my own body, the body of the world and the urge toward language. For me painting and sculpting are complementary.
My childhood in Tennessee was shaped by the rich textures of the mountains, swamps, woods and creeks. The habit of careful observation of nature, instilled by my father, inspired curiosity and resourcefulness. This wonder and inventiveness have found their way into my work.
I am both animal and symbol maker.” – Jenny Lynn McNutt
