Description: Acrylic on book page paper. Black Madonna on Book Page with Map of Virgina and Maryland (pg 271). Vanessa German is an award-winning multidisciplinary artist based in the Homewood community of Pittsburgh, PA. Vanessa creates "contemporary power figures," as she defines them, made of everyday objects transformed into an iconography of astonishing metaphors. Vanessa believes her power figures are "alive by sight, and the adventure that sight incites in every piece" has its own meaning. Her visual works have been shown in galleries and museums throughout the country and was recently acquired by The Progressive Collection, one of the preeminent corporate contemporary art collections in the nation, and The David C. Driscoll collection, Franciscan University Collection. Her sculptures will be represented in "African American Art 1950-Present," produced by the Driscoll Center and the Smithsonian Institution.
