Professor Emerita (Years of Service: 1985-2020)
Lucy Puls works with images and objects to explore the uniquely
human relationship to material possessions. Personal belongings
play a psychological and cultural role that is exceedingly
complex. Through the use of sculptural form, photographic images,
paint, and other additives the goal is to facilitate travel
between material awareness and representation.
Puls teaches sculpture, Beginning through Advanced, including Sculpture: Materials, and Sculpture: Concepts, as well as Seminar in Art Practice for undergraduates and Graduate Seminar.
Her work is represented in numerous collections including the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Oakland Museum, the Achenbach Foundation for Graphic Arts, and the Jewish Museum in New York.
