I’m currently exploring the relationship between healing my body and other forms of healing like that of the earth and humanity in the sculptures.

The peer portraits are an ongoing project started in 2018 which questions the position of women artists in art institutions and art collections.

Kristi 莊礼恩 Chan

Kristiana 莊礼恩 Chan is a first generation Chinese Malaysian artist, writer, and educator from the American South. Her work examines the material memory of the landscape and the excluded histories of the Asian American diaspora.  She researches the political, historical, and environmental heritage of the landscape and its material elements, incorporating  their elemental properties into her processes. Recent projects have focused on the lost stories of early Chinese diaspora settlers in California, and their connections to early industries like fishing and mining, resulting in objects like saltwater developed cyanotypes, screen printed sand and wild clay, and site-specific incense from dried fish and seaweed. These stories, images, and references entangle the historical and mythological, while the gathered materials attempt to transcend gaps in the written record. By uncovering roots of her community’s origins, her work seeks to revive and reckon with lost histories and lives, their implications on both the sociopolitical and natural landscape. She has shown at the Asian Art Museum, Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History, University of San Francisco, Stelo Arts, SOMArts, Vessel Gallery, Kearny Street Workshop, and the David Brower Center. She is a Teaching Artist Mentor with the Performing Arts Workshop and formermember of CTRL+SHFT Collective, a graduate of the New York Foundation of Arts Immigrant Artist program, and has curated with Kearny Street Workshop and the California Institute for Integral Studies.  Kristiana is based in the Bay Area.

Monica Curiel

She / Her

Monica Curiel is a first-generation Mexican American born in Texas to immigrant parents from Jalisco, México who work as laborers. As a child, she accompanied her parents to work sites, spending time with her father on construction sites, and helping her mother clean homes. These early experiences were instrumental in shaping her artistic practice, exposing her to the raw materials that form the foundation of her artistic palette, such as plaster, house paint, and grouting tools. By basing her creative practice around labor materials, each piece becomes a celebration of her heritage and a way to honor the sacrifices that her parents and countless immigrants have made. Her work is influenced both by her culture and by her interdisciplinary education in interior design, fashion design, and fine art. Placing her pieces in spaces where Mexican immigrants are often stereotypically confined to roles such as cleaning or gardening, their presence reflects the American dream.

Annie Louise Goldman

She / Her

Annie Louise Goldman is a painter based in the San Francisco Bay Area whose work explores biblical and kabbalistic themes through personal midrash. Animals perform manifold functions in the paintings; monkeys are pre-expulsion from Eden humans, cats and people undergo spiritual metamorphosis on a journey to talk to God, and a whale’s digestive tract breaks down and reconstructs language itself.

Anat Keinan

She / Her

Anat Keinan (b. 1989, Jerusalem, Israel) is a multidisciplinary artist currently based in Brooklyn, NY. She graduated with an honor BFA from Bezalel Academy of Art and Design (2017), studied Fine Art at the HGB Art Academy in Leipzig (2016), and completed an MFA in Sculpture at Yale School of Art (2023).

Anat Keinan’s artistic approach is conceived from questions regarding the built environment, how places are inhabited and experienced, how they change over time, and exploring how space-body-sculpture relationships open positions of dialogue. Anat Keinan creates large-scale architectural installations that revolve around the human body in space. Her works explore how the architectural environment and physical objects shape our movement, stability, our choreography, and our emotions, challenging and rethinking how the human body reacts to and is activated by material and tactile space. Her practice develops a distinct visual language that traverses sculpture, installation, drawing, printmaking, machinery, and kinetic objects.

Kerry Kaneda Meyer

She / Her

My work emerges out of a lifetime spent outdoors, in nature.  From my childhood growing up in the Sierra Nevada Mountains near Lake Tahoe to graduate studies in Forest/Environmental Science, I have gained an appreciation for the natural world that informs my life and my art. I love closely examining the intricate structure and inherent complexity of things like leaves, petals, pollens, seed pods, etc., to amplify the observed patterns, symmetries, and textures into carvings or additions to a wheel-thrown vessel. Animals, particularly skulls, horns, scales, and corals, and formations such as rivers, tidepools, and other geologic creations, are all sources of inspiration, as are interconnected systems in nature, such as food webs. My work ranges from a meditation on botanical forms and symmetries in nature to the tension between the organic and man-made.  What can I produce that either highlights a concern or prompts a conversation about current issues affecting the environment and ecosystems?

Aly Ogasian

She / Her

Aly Ogasian is an interdisciplinary artist based in Los Angeles. Her practice is research driven and typically site responsive, sparking conversations about everyday life and survival in a rapidly changing environment. Recent projects critique notions of expedition in the 21st century and play with the idea of an island as a metaphor, exploring notions of adaptation and survival, community and individualism, terrestrial and extraterrestrial, nature and technology. She has two separate longstanding collaborative practices with artist, designer and educator Shona Kitchen and artist and educator Claudia O’Steen. She is an Assistant Professor of Art at Scripps College and core faculty in Intercollegiate Media Studies at The Claremont Consortium.

The artist studied at the Fashion Institute of Technology and received a BFA in Fine Art Studies from the School of Visual Arts. The artist currently lives and works in Vero Beach, Florida. Pierre’s work and process are informed and inspired by memory, fantasy, surrealism, popular culture, and the decorative and ornamental arts. The continued focus is on the exploration of identity and ethnicity with connections to her Haitian heritage, the Caribbean, and Europe, as well as broader global cultural mythologies. Her work also work considers multilayered feminine and historical tropes relative to contemporary social and cultural realities. This inspiration has manifested itself in years of collecting diverse materials that often serve as muses in her daily practice and as physical elements within her assemblages and installations.
