Lisa Jacobs & Cristiana Savoré
The Feminine Form
February 2–March 31
Opening Reception: February 22, 7:30–9 PM
When Lisa Jacobs and Cristiana Savoré worked side by side in Katie Truk’s class at the Visual Arts Center of New Jersey, they discovered a common passion for the female form. Although their personal styles differ, they found similar attention to movement and shapes in their respective works. A friendship was born and from the confrontation and reciprocal inspiration came some of the work that is presented in this exhibition.
Lisa Jacobs has been creating artwork since she was a child. She has painted, worked with pastels, and drawn with pen and ink, and as a teenager, she won several awards for her painting and drawing. Lisa has been sculpting for the past 8 years. She has had pieces displayed in the Gaelen Juried Art Show and at the Visual Arts Center of New Jersey. She enjoys sculpting as a way to express thoughts and emotions without using words at all.
Cristiana Savorè was born and raised in Italy and moved to the US in 2000. While always passionate about the arts, she grew up to be a Physical Anthropologist and Molecular Biologist. As a researcher at the University of Delaware, she enrolled in some pottery classes and she fell in love with the medium. But the human form and anatomy have always been her true passion, so she abandoned the wheel to create sculptures that merge her love for the plasticity of clay with the idea that discarded objects can have a second life. Ever experimenting with materials and tools she is at the moment focusing on the female shapes.
