Debbie Kupinsky is an artist working in ceramics as well as an Assistant Professor of Art at St. Norbert College. Kupinsky is most interested in examining the interactions between the natural and man-made world through creating works that reference branches, birds, other natural elements at the places where the natural world intersects with our constructed environment. These spaces give viewers an immersive experience where they can reflect on their own relationships with the world around them and how human beings impact this world. These installations are inspired by walks in places close to her home such as beside the Fox River, and in nature preserves around the Fox Valley where the industrial and the natural come together in unexpected ways. There is evidence of these collisions every day— railroad tracks, drainage pipes, old trash left behind after the snow melt in Spring and the humming of the paper-mill over the river.
