Sculpture is the first monograph dedicated to the work of New York-based British artist Jesse Wine, bringing together a substantial body of work produced between 2016 and 2023.
This richly illustrated volume includes essays by writer and editor Amy Sherlock, exploring the historical context of gestures and movements in art; by SculptureCenter deputy director Kyle Dancewicz, providing his analysis of Imperfect List
, Wine's first institutional US solo exhibition; and by anthropologist Tim Ingold
, delving into the materiality and symbolic meaning of clay, the artist's primary medium.
Jesse Wine (born 1983 in Chester, England) is a New York-based British artist who works primarily with clay and ceramics. Wine's colorfully expressive sculptures investigate notions of the body and the gesture, and how they fit into and cohabit with capitalist society and the urban landscape.
