Christina Erives, 2017–2018 Quigley-Hiltner Fellow

Christina ErivesUsing clay and extreme attention to detail, Christina Erives constructs information rich installations that speak of her experience as a Mexican-American. Her interest in creating objects arises from a fear of certain processes and techniques being lost and forgotten. Through the use of various objects she hopes to render a narrative that embraces and celebrates rituals for a new generation. In the process of making, she enjoys seeing objects evolve through the use of clay just as the telling of a story can change over time.

Christina Erives was born in Los Angeles, California. She received her MFA from Pennsylvania State University and both a BA and MA in studio art from California State University of Northridge. Christina has exhibited her work at The American Museum of Ceramic Art in Pomona, California; Penland Gallery in North Carolina; and Baltimore Clayworks in Maryland.
