American-born sculptor jd Hansen lives and works in the United States. Hansen’s work explores the juxtaposition of vulnerability and strength using the human and animal form. Her work excavates the intricacies of human psychology, non-verbal communication and theories of quantum physics through elongated figures, subtle use of body language, and most recently, the addition of welded copper handwriting to her work.
The inclusion of copper handwriting in jd’s art adds conceptual depth and meaning to the solidity of the bronze. The handwriting flows around the sculptures like nebulous thoughts caught in a moment in time, and the blankets of type conjoin with the bronze forms to become an integral part of the overall form. The combination of singular bronze forms and flowing blankets of type is meant to reconstruct the way communication happens…not by specific words, but by small gestures, by sounds and cadence, and by an aura of emotion and intellect that all mesh together to create the whole.

Sculptor jd hansen’s work reflects the subtleties of emotional circumstance moment by moment. Whether reflecting tension, conflict, peace, or joy through the smallest tilt of the head of position of an arm, she constructs exquisite portraits of the human condition in her own unique voice. The voice comes across in aesthetically approachable exteriors where smooth textures give way to melted roughness and dignified postures warp into emotional curves. The warm bronze becomes a vehicle for intense and complex psychological permutations, acting themselves out within the classic medium.
Jd Hansen has gained considerable recognition over the past few years with numerous articles in national publications as well as gallery representation across the United States. Her extraordinary work has put her into the spotlight and caught the attention of collectors worldwide. Just recently, two of her 10 foot sculptures were installed in Taiwan.
Hansen’s education includes a BFA from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California and hands on foundry training in bronze and metalworking. She has been included in many exhibitions throughout the United States. Her sculptures appear in various public and private collections including the Davis Brown Tower and World Food Museum in Des Moines, Iowa, Seven Bridges Foundation in Greenwich, Connecticut and a permanent installation at a five star Taiwanese resort.
