Sculpture and Works on Paper by Christy Rupp

Written By: Christy Rupp
Christy Rupp emerged as an American artist and activist in Manhattan in the late 1970s, using commodified materials to construct three-dimensional, sculptural works imbued with a dynamic vitality. This volume contains her recent sculptures and works on paper that visualize our postmodern, capitalist stage of the Anthropocene. Rupp’s artwork aims to deconstruct the harsh division that separate humans and the environment, while addressing politics, culture, economics, ethics, and aesthetics as they impact the conditions of ecosystems.

Explore Rupp’s diverse portfolio of work from the second half of the twentieth century––inside is a rich compendium of animals sculpted from recycled materials or her captivating abstract compositions of urban ecology. Her sculptures and works on paper alike will have you pondering upon our engagement with the world of rampant consumption and destruction and how we may take action.

Christy Rupp, Artist: Christy Rupp is an American eco-artist and citizen scientist. She moved to the NYC of the late 70’s when it faced bankruptcy and offered fertile ground for a generation of artists lucky enough to participate in the petri dish of history, culture and nature that was late capitalist downtown. Originating from an interest in urban ecology and the waste stream, Rupp’s work taps into universal themes of climate change and justice.

Rupp has received grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, New York State Council on the Arts, Anonymous Was A Woman Foundation, Joan Mitchell Foundation (Creating a Living Legacy Award) and Art Matters Foundation. Her work has been visible in the US and internationally since 1979. She lives in New York.
