KRISTINA LARSON is a New Orleans based artist. She holds a Master of Art in Arts Administration from the Savannah College of Art and Design and a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts and Tufts University. She has exhibited nationally and internationally in solo and group exhibitions including Design Miami, FL; Ogden Museum of Southern Art, LA; Capitol Park Museum, LA; Shaw Center for the Arts, LA; Martin Lawrence Galleries, LA; Clock Gallery, Morocco; the Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition, NY, among others. She has received grants from the Massachusetts Cultural Council (2002), from the Louisiana Division of the Arts (2015 and 2019) and a scholarship from Anderson Ranch, CO (2020). Larson's work is in the collections of Besh Restaurant Group, LA; Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, NY; and the Savannah College of Art and Design, GA. Kristina Larson creates biomorphic three-dimensional art forms primarily out of clay. Within her multidisciplinary practice she seeks to blur the lines between art, craft and design by creating contemporary avant-garde works out of traditional materials. She often juxtaposes her material by incorporating vibrant LED lights, inspired by neon art and the electric pop colors of the 1980s. While sculpting in clay, she explores the limits of the material through hand-building, wheel-throwing and assembling. Larson relies on gravity, chance, and accidental happenings to embrace the natural movement, which is present in her abstract organic forms.
