Interior decoration: Jeff Zimmerman sculptural pieces

Jeff Zimmerman belongs to a group of daring contemporary artists who employ the ancient material as a means of expression rather than an end in itself. He uses glass in a way that every interior decoration would just be better with one of his artworks.

 

His sculptures and functional pieces exploit techniques of advanced glassmaking and the defining properties of glass itself, the way it hovers between liquid and solid states, its reflectivity and tactile qualities, its habit of moving constantly while still molten, to evoke a dimension of experience where things are happening that we can feel but not necessarily define. His signature organic shapes are intensely colorful but soft, mysterious but welcoming, disquieting yet familiar.

Drawn formally from nature, they result from the dramatic pushing, pulling, dripping and spinning actions through which they took shape.

Raised by a painter mother and a sculptor stepfather at the Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Colorado, his early exposure to nature remains a vital force in his work. In 1988,  Jeff took his first glass blowing class. This led to learning the classical Venetian approach to glass blowing while receiving his BFA at a small arts school in the woods of Tennessee.

Jeff began his apprenticeship, honing his technique while developing his own artistic voice. While making experimental sculpture and traveling throughout Europe and Africa, Jeff worked with such esteemed artists as Robert Wilson, Gaetano Pesce and Robert Morris. His solo work began to attract attention from collectors, curators, and the public in 1999, when he presented a sprawling sculpture installation at the Robert Lehman Gallery in Brooklyn, New York, titled “Anthropology Museum of the Future,” featuring glass fetish pieces in black light.
