BARDO Formless

Shelley Warren earned an MFA in Sculpture from Yale University and a BFA from the School of Visual Arts, NYC. She is a recipient of a New Jersey Council of the Arts Grant, Art Matters Foundation Grant, and a Rutgers University Center for Innovative Printmaking Fellowship. Shelley has also been granted a residency at Yaddo, Saratoga Springs, New York. Her multimedia installations have been exhibited in numerous venues nationally and internationally, and her work is in several private and public collections including the Lannan Foundation Collection.

Warren currently holds a teaching position at the University of Vermont. She has been a Visiting Artist and Juror at Harvard University School of Design, Barnard and Columbia University Architecture Department, Parsons School of Design, Yale School of Architecture, Edinboro University Art Department and Norwich University School of Architecture.

Warren’s Buddhist Studies in the Himalayan regions of India and Nepal, beginning in the 70’s, are evidenced throughout her work. Her multimedia installations display the metaphoric tensions between ephemeral video projections on sculptures that seemingly merge with static material. Warren’s work explores the question of human nature, identity and sanctity.
