Jeanne Verdoux
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Bedford-Stuyvesant

ARTIST STATEMENT: My art practice is rooted in drawing. Everyday in sketchbooks, I make drawings and notes about people, places and ideas I come across in the city. In the studio, I revisit these observations and transform them into series of larger drawings. I practice drawing as an experimental visual exploration, using various materials and techniques including printmaking, animation and photography. Motivated by the desire of reducing waste, I have chosen to use only recycled and environmentally friendly materials such as water-soluble gouache, ink, charcoal, found paper and cardboard. I am currently working on a series of large-scale drawings on the theme of the female figure as a vessel which embodies my personal views on women’s experiences about fertility and motherhood. The work depict female forms pouring liquids into one another, dancing, squirting, or crying. This recent project has lead me to experimenting with clay and creating three dimensional female vessel in ceramics.
