Student Perspective: Naomi Nemtzow on the NYSS Sculpture Program
March 28, 2022 · Student Perspectives
Artist Naomi Nemtzow discusses her experience in Lee Tribe’s Virtual Evening Sculpture Class.
After years of making paintings and collages in two dimensions, my work started telling me it wanted a third dimension. Lee Tribe’s Thursday night class has been a terrific place to explore the challenge of building 3D wall pieces, adding physical substance and actual space to my previous vocabulary of color, shape, and line. I had imagined that adding the third dimension would be fairly straightforward, but quickly learned it’s not. That third dimension needs its own logic, its own meaning. In our weekly class discussions, the instructor and the class members keep me focused on finding that meaning. I’ll be including work from this class in my Bowery Gallery show next fall.
