Artist Alice Vander Vennen uses found objects--piano parts, fossils, stones, willow branches and grape vines carefully arranged on a canoe-shaped copper base to create another in a series of extraordinary sculptural wall hangings. These uniquely modern pieces are inspired by both her family history and a strong connection to nature.
“Reimagining the familiar, my contemporary compositions invite connection with ancient wisdom and emergent stories through engagement with the natural world.” Alice Vander Vennen
She trained as a sculptor at Calvin College, USA and at the Ontario College of Art and Design. Alice Vander Vennen’s work is in public, private and corporate collections both here and abroad.
