Jolanta Jagiello is a welded metal sculptor with an Acme Artist Studio at High House Production Park. Jolanta is influenced by the work of the American sculptor David Smith who was profoundly concerned with relations, such as: part to part, part to whole, part to series, surface to volume, surface to edge, finding to inventing, metal to metal, industry to landscape, and daily existence to prehistory.
Jolanta’s work is a statement of the historical identities of the steel objects, which are re-claimed, re-cycled, and re-made into ‘new’ works. She has won the V&A Inspired by… in 2005, 2008, and 2010 with her metal sculptures which have been inspired by the V&A Collections. Jolanta has exhibited in solo shows at the Changing Room Gallery, Melting Pot, Fovea Gallery, Well House Gallery, and in group shows at Nunhead Cemetery, Rickshaw House Gallery, Space Station Sixty-five, Ragged School Museum, The Knapp Gallery, The Synergy Gallery, and Morley College Gallery. Jolanta is a member of the Association of Polish Artists (APA) and regular exhibits her work annually in the Posk Gallery in Hammersmith . Jolanta is also an independent curator, currently resident at Nunhead Cemetery with annual exhibitions in the Stearn’s Mausoleum and Restored Anglican Chapel, archived on www.artgoingplaces.com.
