b. 1980

 

Christina A. West is an avid people watcher with a dry sense of humor, active imagination, and an innate impulse to create with her hands. If you meet her and she stares at you a bit too long, she's probably just picturing you naked.

 

West is a sculptor living in Atlanta, GA where she is an Associate Professor of Ceramics at Georgia State University. She earned her MFA from Alfred University in 2006 and since has extensively exhibited her work across the country in venues such as Plug Projects (Kansas City, MO), the The Bellevue Arts Museum (Bellevue, WA), The Bemis Center for Contemporary Art (Omaha, NE), Hallwalls Contemporary Art Center (Buffalo, NY), the Zuckerman Museum of Art (Kennesaw, GA) and the Mindy Solomon Gallery (Miami). Additionally, Christina’s work has been supported by a grants and fellowships from the New York Foundation for the Arts, The Archie Bray Foundation for Ceramic Arts, the George Sugarman Foundation, and the Southeastern College Art Conference.
