About

Wendy Klemperer was born in 1958 in Boston, MA. Raised in Cambridge and Watertown, she was most able to explore her passion for animals and nature during summers spent at her grandmother's country house in New Hampshire.The daughter of two chemists, she grew up with dual interests of art and the biological sciences, and received a bachelor degree in biochemistry from Harvard University before deciding to pursue art full time. She moved to NYC in 1980, and studied at Pratt Institute. The vitality of Klemperer's work stems from her physical involvement in the making of the pieces, a kind of action sculpture process, combined with a deeply ingrained, intuitively felt understanding of the form and movement of animals. In the early 1990's she started welding, and soon was concentrating on larger, outdoor sculpture. Scrap yards and construction sites provide raw material for her linear, gestural sculpture. She finds most of the forms already bent into the piles of rebar; her process is largely to select and cut, tack-welding the pre-existing curves into sculptural form. Wendy Klemperer lives in Brooklyn, NY and Nelson, NH. She has exhibited her work throughout the United States.
