Caprice Pierucci

Senior Lecturer, Studio Art: Fibers / 3D Design
Office: JCM 1120
Office Phone: 245-3763


Caprice Pierucci received her BFA from Carnegie-Mellon University and her MFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York City.  She is best known for her wood wall relief works that evoke ideas of skeletons, shells and landscapes. They are inspired by her fiber and tapestry weaving background reflecting the linear repetitions of textiles. The forms are mostly curvilinear and use progressive rhythms to create movement and shadow. Her most recent work deals with the idea of natural forms developing over time. The layers and undulating rhythms in the forms speak of our mortality and the huge expanses of time that lead to one particular moment of beauty.

Caprice has been in over ninety exhibitions and has won numerous awards. Her work is also included in some prestigious collections such as Westinghouse, Morgan Stanley and the Rockefeller collection.
