Christina A. West is an artist whose practice is rooted in politics of the gaze, using sculpture, video, and photography to focus on the male body. Her works attempt to move beyond a simple reversal of the objectifying male gaze, conveying a mixture of desire, curiosity, and empathy, while complicating and questioning stereotypical notions about masculinity and femininity. She has extensively exhibited her work across the country in venues such as the Mattress Factory (Pittsburgh), The Everson Museum of Art (Syracuse), Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center (Buffalo), and Atlanta Contemporary. Her work has been supported by residencies at The Bemis Center for Contemporary Art, The Archie Bray Foundation for the Ceramic Arts, The Vermont Studio Center, and The Clay Studio of Philadelphia among others. cwestsculpture.com
