Caprice Pierucci

BIOGRAPHY

Caprice Pierucci received her Bachelor in Fine Arts from Carnegie-Mellon University in 1983 and her Master of Fine Arts degree from the School of Visual Arts in New York City in 1989. She is a sculptor currently working mostly with wood. The work reflects her background in fibers. The forms are mostly linear and use progressive rhythm to create movement and shadow. Her most recent work deals with the idea of forms developing over time. The layers and undulating rhythms in the forms speak of mortality and the huge expanses of time that lead to one particular moment of beauty.

 

Caprice has been in over ninety exhibitions and has won numerous awards. Her work is also included in some prestigious collections such as Westinghouse, Morgan Stanley and the Rockefeller collection.
