In Eutectic’s Back Room:

Victoria Christen

May 1 – 23

 

Victoria Christen‘s work reflects her personal
experience of the world around that surrounds her.  The colors,
surfaces, markings, and shapes she uses, reference ceramic traditions
and the lush Pacific Northwest, but the end products are highly
personal: intuitive, flamboyant, unique, full of her voice.  Her work
also expresses her childhood in Montana and her parents influence on
her.  Mirroring the creative ways her seamstress mother used color,
patterns and tucks to make quilts and clothes for Victoria and her
sisters, and her machinist father’s inventive whirligigs and other
folk art creations. 

Her ceramic pieces represent the paradoxes that
defined their lives and perhaps those of all humans.  They are
containers and dispensers, receivers and givers, functional and
sculptural, embodiments of freedom and order, creativity and
constraint.
