We've written about (and videotaped) Drenk before. Her scupltures begin with simple materials and are informed by "systems of information." She often manipulates books, PVC pipes and other cultural items in her work. She hints at the "mortality" of these inanimate objects--they decay as surely as we do.
Drenk, from Montana and living in Florida, also makes work that is truly beautiful.
She is the recipient of the 2006 International Sculpture Center's Outstanding Student Achievement in Contemporary Sculpture Award. Her work has been show in Sculpture Magazine, Juxtapose, Philadelphia Magazine and many others.
