   NYC-based artist, Jaynie Crimmins, illuminates the power of creative transformation, ingenuity and ecological responsibility in her practice through the physical acts of deconstructing and repurposing quotidian materials - repurposing solicitations, security envelopes, and catalogs that are difficult to recycle because their inks have high concentrations of heavy metals.

   Her work has been shown at ART on PAPER NYC; and exhibited at the Sharjah Museum of Art in the United Arab Emirates; SPRING/BREAK Art Show, NYC; Governors Island Art Fair, NYC; the National Museum of Romanian Literature in addition to museums throughout the United States including the Muscarelle Museum of Art at the College of William and Mary, VA; Hunterdon Art Museum, NJ; Zuckerman Museum of Art, Kennesaw State University, GA.

Crimmins holds a BS from the State University College at Buffalo and MS from the College of New Rochelle, with a minor in Art Therapy. Her work has been shown at ART on PAPER NYC; and has exhibited at the Sharjah Museum of Art in the United Arab Emirates; SPRING/BREAK Art Show, NYC; Governor’s Island Art Fair, NYC; the National Museum of Romanian Literature in addition to museums throughout the United States including the Muscarelle Museum of Art at the College of William and Mary, VA among others.

I feel a responsibility to up-cycle the materials  that have been imposed upon me by marketers...but creating the work is also a meditation, allowing me to to develop a visual language around my emotional and inner response to information or imagery in my environment. The New Yorker magazines, for instance, are used to represent the joys and sorrows that challenge me to remain at peace.
