About

Sidonie Villere has a BFA in Ceramics from The Newcomb School of Art at Tulane University and an MFA in Ceramics from The University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth. As an artist her work has been exhibited across the United States and is in permanent collections of several museums including The New Orleans Museum of Art and The Ogden Museum of Southern Art, as well as Saks Fifth Avenue Department Stores in New York, Boston, Phoenix, San Francisco, Beverly Hills and most recently Chicago. Villere is a multi-faceted artist using self-preservation and its contradictions as a common theme in her work. As a sculptor, her ceramic works often use geology to shape metaphorical self-portraits. As a painter, her ethereal works use multiple mediums to achieve layering and subtle depth that produce a painterly effect but maintain a sculptural aesthetic. She has had solo exhibitions in Miami, Nashville and New Orleans and been featured in numerous group exhibitions in Atlanta, Miami, New York and New Orleans. As a curator, she has organized national ceramic exhibitions in New Orleans and Portland, OR. Additionally, her large-scale works were featured in The P.1 Projects satellite exhibition at the Prospect.1 Biennial Welcome Center in 2008. Villere’s work is also included in the publication, 500 Ceramic Sculptures: Contemporary Practice, Singular Work, by Glen Brown, 2009. In 2011, her work was selected by collector/curator Beth Rudin DeWoody for the January White Sale, an international group exhibition in Chelsea and at Cynthia Volk Gallery New York during Asia Week. In 2015, Villere’s work will be exhibited at the VOLTA11 Art Fair in Basel Switzerland, as well as, the Contemporary Arts Center New Orleans in Reverb, a survey of works marking the ten-year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. In 2016, Villere will be featured in a group exhibition at Galerie Jochen Hempel in Berlin. artist statement "I believe our purpose is to connect. I also believe we cannot connect without being vulnerable. With my work I rely on contradictions spurred by self-preservation. Through my sculptures, this exploration visually relies on referencing human and geological processes; both giving surface and form to my emotional expressions. The pieces are born through revealing and concealing, intentionally and intuitively making the emotional physical. They are architectural versus geological, destroying versus repairing, protected versus exposed. Creating these self-portraits with three dimensional, abstract, ceramic sculptures and multi-media paintings I am able to edit these dichotomies so that the viewer is left with a minimal physicality and an overall mood."
