about.jpg
  • Judy Aiello is an interdisciplinary artist working in sculpture and drawing. Her work explores themes of survival, endurance and coexistence. She is influenced by observations of grouped formations and tries to identify gestural expression within forms.
  • I am interested in how unique elements function within part of a larger system. Groupings allude to social behavior, congregation and communication.
  • I am curious about how we establish boundaries of a tribe, and consider the fluidity and potential of the collective.
  • Her work has been featured at Exhibit Salon, Sideshow Gallery, Southfirst, Go Yoga and the artist network. Her drawings are included in the Digital Library of The Sketchbook Project 2013.
  • She holds MFA and MAT degrees from the School of Visual Arts, and her BA from Rutgers University. She is an instructor of art and design at The Art Institute of New York City.
