BIOGRAPHY

Born in Wisconsin 1971, Wendy Wischer currently lives and works in Salt Lake City. She received an MFA from Florida State University, 1995 and a BFA from the University of Wisconsin Madison, 1993. Wischer creates work in a variety of media from sculptural objects, to installations, video and public works. Much of the artwork is based on blurring the separation between the intrinsic history of working with nature and the cutting edge of New Genre and New Media. She is the recipient of the Pollock-Krasner Grant, the South Florida Consortium, the Florida Individual Artist Fellowship, the Artist Enhancement Grant, and the New Forms Grant among others. Wendy has exhibited extensively nationally, and her international exhibits include Spain, the Dominican Republic, Mexico, Italy and Israel.
