Almond Zigmund pushes at the edges of space and confronts ideas like form and decoration in the process of making objects and installations that have a commanding presence. She destabilizes standard descriptions of objects and upsets our expectations of regularity and stability. Inspired by mid-century design, minimalism, and architecture, she creates smart interactions of incongruous things with patterns and abstract shapes that each express their own unique personality. Zigmund’s smart objects made of painted and flocked materials are thrilling for their sharp designs that play with superb color combinations.
Almond Zigmund received her BFA from Parsons School of Design, in both New York and Paris in 1994. In 2000 she earned her MFA from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Zigmund's work has been exhibited internationally for the past decade, including shows in Zurich, Berlin, New York, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and Columbus. Her work has been selected for shows curated by Dave Hickey, Robert Storr, David Pagel, David Adamo, Jessica Frost, Rolf Staub and Steven Criqui, among others. In 2007 the Parrish Art Museum mounted a solo exhibition of her work, titled “Remembering The Future.”
