Born in Los Angeles, California, Edith Garcia's work draws you into an alluring world of installation and sculpture. She focuses on the unique individual experiences throughout our lifetimes, the minimal occurrences that transpire each day, addressing contemporaneous issues specific to the human condition and grafts them into site-specific installations and objects. Her body of work has been exhibited throughout North America, Mexico and Italy, in spaces such as the Northern Clay Center, Minnesota, Escuela Nacional de Artes Plasticas, Mexico City and is included in the permanent Sculpture Garden of the Archie Bray Foundation, Montana.
Garcia is strongly engaged in the critical research of figurative ceramics with curatorial projects, publishing and creating works that reflect this passion. Garcia received her BFA from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, MFA from the California College of Arts (and Crafts) and MPhil at the Royal College of Art in London working on research focusing around: The Absence and Presence of the Human Form in Ceramic Sculpture-Where is the Vanishing Point. And she currently has had her first major publication Ceramics and the Human Figure released worldwide by A&C Black Visual Arts in 2012.
