Blane De St. Croix
Blane De St. Croix is a researcher, explorer and artist whose visceral sculptures investigate societies’ complex and often destructive relationship with nature and the geopolitical contexts that inform this relationship. With works that address border issues, land use, strip mining, deforestation, climate change and pollution, De St. Croix seeks to facilitate a discourse around how to develop a more conscientious way of engaging with our environment on a personal, social, and political level. De St. Croix’s work has been widely exhibited both nationally and internationally, in solo and group shows at venues including: Fredericks & Freiser, New York, NY; Sculpture Center, Long Island City, NY; Weatherspoon Art Museum, Greensboro, NC; The Contemporary Art Center, New Orleans, LA; Värmlands Museum, Karlstad, Sweden; DeCordova Museum and Sculpture Park, Lincoln, MA; Smack Mellon, Brooklyn, NY; Art In Embassies Program of the U.S. Department of State, Washington, D.C; Socrates Sculpture Park, Long Island City, NY; Bass Museum of Art, Miami, FL; The Asia Society, Houston, TX. De St. Croix has been the recipient of numerous grants and awards, including The John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship; The Joan Mitchell Foundation Grant for Painters and Sculptors; The Pollock Krasner Foundation Grant; The Smithsonian Artist Research Fellowship and a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship in Sculpture.
