BIOGRAPHY
Carol Peligian lives and works in New York City. Her drawings and sculptures have been shown in both the United States and Europe. The work deals with lessons of history and evolution using natural forms. The juxtaposition of the organic and manufactured as they trade boundaries, make more permeable the borders between the work and the viewer. Current work includes a recently installed outdoor public sculpture, and two projects, one of which will tie, for the first time, public art with a national cause. In Fall of 2008, her work will be shown at MOBIA (The Museum of Biblical Art) in New York City. She has taught at the Rhode Island School of Design and has been a faculty member at Parsons School of Design since 1994 where she currently teaches drawing. The recipient of several grants and awards, she is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design and has also studied at Brown University, the Sorbonne and Sarah Lawrence College.
