This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Jean Follett was one of the earliest artists to use "junk sculpture" in the 1950s. A student of Hans Hofmann, she began to apply paint so thickly that her pictures looked like reliefs. She embedded "found" objects pieces of wood, metal, string, and heavier objects into black-and-white reliefs.

With these she created surrealistic figure fetishes and machine-people such as Lady With the Open-Door Stomach (1956), and Many Headed Creature (1958).

She was closely associated with Richard Stankiewicz, her fellow student at Hofmann's school, and was credited with influencing him in the direction of junk sculpture.

In Minnesota, she studied at the St. Paul School of Art, the University of Minnesota, the Minnesota Art Association and with Cameron Booth. She spenttime in Paris at the Academie Grande Chaumiere and as a student of Fernand Leger.

Exhibition venues included the Guggenheim Museum, Minneapolis Art Institute and Museum of Contemporary Art in Houston.
