Christie Lange is an emerging visual artist whose practice embraces the material of clay. For Christie, the tactile nature of clay evokes a deep connection between the human and the land, the living and non-living, the organic and non-organic, the natural and the human made. Held within her own hands, clay contains the potential of making anew from the dust. Her interests include biological and social ecologies, present and future. Investigating themes of redemption, restoration, and renewal, her focus rests on ideas of adaptation, resilience, relationships, inter-connectedness and promise. Christie desires a deeper connection with the self, others, and the land.
