Ms. Ginzel’s work is based on the transformation of random objects gathered from the everyday. The artist collects mass-produced printed-paper products such as a hamburger wrapper, a shoe repair receipt and stamps. She then embroiders these massed-produced items creating beautiful significant hand-made artworks. Through the process of covering the original meaning, the object then changes completely. The mundane, that served a particular function at one time or another, is given place and reverence, transcending its identity.
She has been the recipient of the following grants, awards and residencies- A Change Inc. Grant Award from the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation; Artists’ Fellowship Inc. Assistance Award; Stephens Grant Award; a Finalist in the LEAP Exhibition at the Society for Contemporary Craft in Pittsburg, PA; SIM- The Icelandic Visual Arts Association and Reykjavik Art Museum Residency, Reykjavik, Iceland; and The Skaftfell Cultural Center Residency in Seydisfjördur, Iceland. In 2013 the artist exhibited her first museum exhibition at the Tennessee Valley Museum of Art in Tuscumbia, AL.
