Jaynie Gillman Crimmins, a Brooklyn based artist, is interested in creating alternative narratives from quotidian materials. She currently works with the promotional mailings she receives - most of which are difficult to recycle because the inks have high concentrations of heavy metals.
Reconfiguring the ordinary and overlooked aspects of our daily existence, her intimate pieces use an economy of means and restraint of process, inspired and influenced by Ruth Asawa’s practice and work.
Crimmins’ work was exhibited at 2016’s SPRING/BREAK Art Show and the 8th Annual Governor’s Island Art Fair. Her project in process, Building a Blue Wall, was recently installed at the John Doe Gallery and Stand4 Gallery both in Brooklyn. In 2018, her work traveled to the National Museum of Romanian Literature in Bucharest for the Bibliophile Book and Object Book Biennial and she will have solo shows at the Rockland Center for the Arts in West Nyack, NY and Kibbee Gallery in Atlanta, GA.
Crimmins holds two degrees in Art Education - a BS from the State University College at Buffalo and MS from the College of New Rochelle, with a minor in Art Therapy.
