Biography   Stella Waitzkin


A reclusive artist, Stella Waitzkin lived and worked for 35 years from a one-bedroom apartment in Chelsea from where she cast sculptures in her living room with toxic resins.  Through an agreement with the landlord, the apartment is now the Waitzkin Memorial Library Trust and houses her collection from which her work is dispersed by trustees to museums and other collectors.

She began her work as an abstract expressionist painter as a student of Hans Hofmann and Willem de Kooning, but by the 1960s had turned to melted sheets of glass resembling the pages of books.  Shortly after she began what became her signature work---polyester-resin sculptures.
