Artist Statement

Brenda Sipe, originally from Berne, Indiana, is an artist whose works with both traditional and explorative materials are heavily influenced by nature. Her interests and background in fiber and 3-dimensional design have merged in recent sculptures literally “woven” from nature. She works equally fluently with paint, on fiber, canvas, and paper. Her work evolves experimentally with pieces being reworked multiple times to achieve the final result. Her focus is on the metaphors inherent in the work, which lead her to goal of clarity of vision and purpose.

Recently, she completed a sculptural commission for the BRAINS Foundation. She has been part of numerous solo and group exhibitions throughout the Midwest. In 1996, she travelled to Cluj-Napoca, Romania, where her paintings and sculptures were installed in a group exhibition, Deschideti, U.S.A., at Academia De’Arte. Brenda has a B.F.A. in Painting from Grand Valley State University, and a M.F.A. in Painting from Michigan State University.
