Christine L. Evans is a ceramic figure sculptor and teacher working in Albuquerque, New Mexico. She received a BAFA with an emphasis in ceramics from the University of New Mexico in 2002. After graduation, Christine devoted herself to teaching the joys of clay with people of all ages in various community art studios and schools. During this time she developed her work to become an evocative expression of emotional authenticity and connection with nature. Her figures project the energy of thoughts and feelings in ways that resonate with the viewer on a primal, subconscious level.
“I seek to convey the beauty of humanity’s emotional response to life through my work. Sculpting the human figure allows me to express particular qualities of feeling in very direct ways. People are adept at reading faces for emotional content and my sculptures are part of that conversation.
When I work on a face, I experience a strong attachment to it as it comes into being. I fall in love with the process of teasing out features, a dab of clay at a time. This happens every time, with each face I create. This passion for the sculpting process drives my practice and lays the foundation for endless possibilities.”
