The Foundation is pleased to provide residency support to James Angello, who will spend time at the Vermont Studio Center in 2015 to develop new work.

Mr. Angello uses collage as a point of departure, explaining, “I collect, alter, fabricate and assemble objects. I want to understand them, their changing relationship with one another and my connection with them. I attempt to test the boundaries of this question by exploring the creation of a vicarious relationship between object and viewer through scale and proximity.” (Excerpt and images of art work below courtesy the artist and Vermont Studio Center.)

The artist received his MFA from UC Davis in 2015. He is a descendant of the Yurok tribe from the Humboldt County area of Northern California.
