The framed pieces are smaller works that are part of my series Building a Blue Wall.  Also shown are a group of pieces to be framed.  All the framed pieces are entitled The Enlightenment will not bow to the Inquisition [numbered].  My studio is located in Bushwick at the Active Space and I welcome anyone who wants to visit after the month of February.  At the moment, I am preparing for a solo show at the Rockland Center for the Arts [RoCA] entitled Quotidian Metamorphosis. March 25 – May 25, 2018  Opening Reception March 25, 1-4 pm

 Jaynie Gillman Crimmins, a Brooklyn based artist, is interested in creating alternative narratives from quotidian materials.  She currently works with the promotional mailings she receives – most of which are difficult to recycle because the inks have high concentrations of heavy metals. Reconfiguring the ordinary and overlooked aspects of our daily existence, her intimate pieces use an economy of means and restraint of process, inspired and influenced by Ruth Asawa’s practice and work.  Crimmins holds two degrees in Art Education – a BS from the State University College at Buffalo and MS from the College of New Rochelle, with a minor in Art Therapy.
