BIOGRAPHY

adrienne shishko is a process-driven, mixed media artist based in boston, ma. she is known for her innovative ways of engaging communities in art beyond traditional gallery spaces through pop ups, digital murals, and building wraps. in 2017, she was commissioned by jbg smith to enliven a business district in crystal city, md which helped encourage new development in the area. inspired by her background as a buyer at saks fifth avenue and as general counsel at an environmentally responsible investing firm, her recent work has centered on using reclaimed materials to explore the environmental impact of fast fashion and issues of over-consumption. since 2009, her work has been exhibited throughout new england at venues including beacon gallery, the quin house, the providence art club, mosesian center for the arts, cambridge art association among others, and is included in numerous private and corporate collections around the country.

BIOGRAPHY

ARTIST STATEMENT

my work explores the environmental impact of materialism and the complicated relationships people have with their possessions. i use a variety of media responding to the stimulus around me. my practice is rooted in intuition, through which i try to balance a playful sense of improvisation with creative systems of order. i often rely on grids and hard lines to build a framework that anchors me as i endeavor to bring meaning to matter and order to the chaos.

MOSH STUDIO

mosh studio is a collaboration between artists and long-time friends, suzanne moseley and adrienne shishko. inspired by their shared process-driven approach and their orientation towards vibrant, energetic work, they began creating work together in 2021. using repurposed mixed media, fiber, and found objects, they explore humanity’s “throw away” culture and impulsive consumerism and its direct impact on the environment.
