Mixed-media sculptor Jodi Colella investigates the inherent qualities in both found and manufactured materials and celebrates the intersection of science and art. Her sculptures are conduits for concepts and ideas, for revelations of memory, science, and social history. The Nobility of Things explores the confluence of space, time, and emotion—the rhythms of breath and body.

Says Colella, “I’ve been making art with found materials and traditional handwork techniques for as long as I can remember. Working with my hands was a valued skill in my family, with birthdays and holidays being an excuse for my parents to shower us with art supplies. One of my earliest bodies of work in middle school included a collection of flattened soda cans found in the debris of an abandoned building behind my house. I would paint them to illustrate the figures I saw in the rusty shapes - everything from people to fire engines.”

Colella lives in Somerville, Mass. and grew up in Dorchester, Mass. For more information about the artist, visit www.jodicolella.com.
