 JERRY WENNSTROM

 

ARTIST’S STATEMENT

In 1979 Jerry Wennstrom was a rising star in the New York art world when he let go of his identity as an artist by intentionally destroying his large body of art and giving away his money and all of his possessions. With this leap of faith, he embarked on a 15 year journey listening, seeking, relying on intuition and unconditional trust to guide and provide for him. He has since created a large new body of art. His current large interactive sculptures are both humorous and deeply meaningful. - Parabola Magazine
