“I explore humanity and wild nature mostly through large-scale sculptural installations, including found objects, fossilized bone, soil, wood and fiber. Working in specific landscapes, I allow natural waterways to mark long textile sheaths left submerged in bogs, rivers and lakes before stitching, felting and printing with ink and water.”

“Spirit surrounds us. Its elements – Earth, Water, Fire and Air – work together in harmony. As these elements combine and affect each pot individually, no two are alike.”

“There is an invisible thread tying my work together. While the portrait paintings depict women whom I respect, the still life compositions echo those sensual curves of a female figure. The linoleum block prints define my love for the outdoors and represent familiar scenes discovered in the past. These pieces unfold stories and speak to one another when displayed in a common space.”

“My painting and drawing method involves a layering of mixed media processes that are both two and three-dimensional. I am interested in mechanical vs. direct art processes that address the idea of experiencing land through a variety of vantage points, such as GPS devices, computer screens, paper maps and car windshields.”

“I see the natural world as part of the human and vice versa. Human creations emerge and dissolve just as natural phenomena do. The evolution of my paintings is part of this pulse.”

Olson will present a gallery talk on January 30 at 6 p.m.

Northern Clay Center (NCC) and The Phipps join forces on a three-year exhibition partnership aimed at increasing the profile of ceramic artists located throughout the lower St. Croix River Valley watershed. This cross-state collaboration features two to three ceramic artists annually in the Atrium Gallery at The Phipps

Wendy Olson received a B.F.A. from the University of Wisconsin-River Falls in painting and an M.F.A. degree from Kent State University in Ohio in ceramics. She teaches ceramics full-time at Inver Hills Community College in Inver Grove Heights, Minn. Her studio is located at her home residence in rural River Falls, where she lives with husband, potter Jay Jensen, and two children, Gabe and Elliot.

Olson decorates her work with under glazes and fires them with a clear glaze to cone 6 oxidation. The images she paints on the surface of her pots are figurative narratives that extend around the pot, across the bottom and to the often to the interior. Olson writes, “My current work is a long glance back into my past, taking a memory or event from my past and turning it into a three-dimensional moment in time. I have found the events I remember most vividly are the ones that involve humor, color, and deviance in some way. Although the memories are personal, the effort to connect the commonplace with the universal and the universal back with the common place is always present. In my research about memory, I found a quote by Carl Jung that perfectly captured what I’m trying to achieve in this body of work, that is, three-dimensional reenactments of important memories.”

“I derive subject matter often from the United Kingdom and my continuing travels in the United States and Europe. The topics, which are often architectural, may not be new or even topographically correct, but I strive to obtain a fresh concept and spontaneity in the pictorial aspect of my art.”
