Denise Pelletier

Material culture, historical image, and the shape-shifting potential of clay converge in the work of Denise Pelletier. Tracing the body as both flesh and social construct, her clay and mixed media objects and installations make use of reconfigured artifacts as bodily stand-ins, giving way to new meanings and space for the imagination. Her work has been shown extensively in the United States and abroad, including shows in Taiwan, Sweden, Germany, and Canada, and she has held residencies in the Netherlands, France, New York, Maine and the Kohler Arts/Industry program. Pelletier earned an MFA in Ceramics from Alfred University in 1994, and currently teaches at Connecticut College, where she is the Roman and Tatiana Weller Professor of Art. She lives and works in East Greenwich, Rhode Island.
