Bio:
Sylvie Lissa Alusitz is a metalsmith and jeweler based in New York. Her work is centered aroundrelationships to people and place, and takes a strong influence from basketry and textile communities. These processes are so strongly associated with place, people, culture and tradition. They have the ability to mark birth, death, and regrowth. She created pieces that become physical representations of things untouchable. Through weaving, stitching, and knotting she creates intimate details for the wearer to connect with. She received her Masters in Fine Arts from State University of New York at New Paltz in Metal in 2019 and a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Jewelry and Metalsmithing from Rochester Institute of Technology in 2015. . Sylvie has exhibited nationally and internationally, being selected for and showing at Autor Contemporary Jewelry Fair in Bucharest, Romania and ‘7 Artists for 7 Days’ at Myday-Byday Gallery in Rome. She has been included in exhibitions at the Greater Denton Arts Council, Denton, TX, The Worcester Center for Crafts, Worcester, MA, Gallery 2052, Chicago, IL, and elsewhere. She has also received funding from the Tiffany and Co. Foundation and the Women’s Jewelry Association and participated in residencies at Harbourfront Centre in Toronto, Canada and Penland School of Craft in Penland, North Carolina. Sylvie co-curates the annual exhibition Dream Machinewith Betsy Lewis and has organized other projects, such as Cultural Appropriation and Appreciation: A Conversation, hosted by the State University of New York at New Paltz.
