“Little Red Rising Hood As A Crime Scene” by Jeanne Jaffe

 

 

 

 

 

Jeanne Jaffe is a sculptor, video and installation artist who recently moved to Florida from Philadelphia where she is Professor Emeritus in the Fine Arts Department at the University of the Arts. She is also a visiting artist/professor at Xian Academy of Fine Arts in China each fall and is currently the coordinator of International Projects at the Jaffe Center for Book Arts.

 

 

 

“Supplicant” Part of the T.S. Eliot Installation

 

 

Jaffe’s work is inspired by an interest in anthropology, mythology, and psychology. Her work “explores how identity is formed from early, pre-verbal, bodily experiences through the later influences of language and culture. In installations that re-examine cultural myths and stories, such as “Little Red Riding Hood as a Crime Scene” or “Eulogy for Nikola Tesla”, well known folktales, history, and poetry are re-imagined through a contemporary lens. These multi-sensory environments are composed of sculpture, videos, interactive elements, stop motion animation and sound and supply a context to question and rethink our cultural assumptions.”

 

 

 

“Elegy for Tesla” by Jeanne Jaffe

 

 

 

Ms. Jaffe is the recipient of fellowship grants from the Gottlieb Foundation for Outstanding Artistic Development, the National Endowment for the Arts, the Mid Atlantic/NEA. the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, the Leeway Foundation, the Independence Foundation, CEVA Foundation, the Virginia A. Groot Foundation, and the Mino Artist Residency in Japan, among others.

Her work has been reviewed extensively, including in Art in America, The New York Times, and Sculpture Magazine. She holds a B.F.A. from Tyler School of Art and an M.F.A. from New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred.
