Edith Garcia (MEXICO/USA/UK)

Edith Garcia

Edith Garcia was born in Mexico, and has lived in both the USA and UK. Many of her ceramic sculptures and installations display a fragmentation of the human form, producing works which externalise a – sometimes disturbing – psychology, overlaying a child’s emotional viewpoint with an adult perspective. An artist who primarily uses ceramics, Garcia incorporates other materials where necessary. She is currently researcher at the Royal College of Art in London. ‘There are many forms in which an artist works; for me my work is a way to record my unique individual experiences throughout my lifetime, depicting everyday occurrences and past experiences, addressing contemporaneous issues specific to the human condition. As my life continues to change so will the content behind my artwork.’
