Suprina Kenney is a New York-based sculptor. Kenney “trash-talks”: she uses trashed objects as part of her sculptural vocabulary. After working as a sculptor at the Macys Thanksgiving Day Parade she started her own prop business with clients such as Annie Leibovitz, Apple, and Bloomindales. Kenney always felt conflicted fabricating objects that were mainly used to sell retail while her personal artwork was made with the same discarded, everyday objects. Kenney believes her sculpture serves as a lure into a deeper recognition of what it means to be human: to be celebrated on the one hand, or discarded by society, authority, or circumstance on the other. In 2012, Kenney created an interactive public sculpture on Governor’s Island inspired by a Tibetan Prayer Wheel. She shows in galleries in Chelsea, Harlem, Brooklyn, Jersey City, Newark, Morristown, Governors Island, Chicago, Scottsdale, and The Monmouth Museum, NJ. She was the recipient of Best Portfolio by Pro Arts, through which she will be exhibiting at the Jersey City Museum (2015); and a grant from the Puffin Foundation for her public sculpture, DNA Totem. Kenney studied sculpture at the University of the Arts.
