Ricki Dwyer’s work combines sculptural practices, printmaking, and ceramics to reflect the potential of cloth as an embodied form. Excited by notions of temporality as reference to bodily growth, decay, and transformation, the work is often figuratively posed as a momentary performance. As a weaver their sculptures are in part produced on the loom and in part developed as assemblage works, highlighting cloth as a contextually defined material.
Ricki was an MFA student at UC Berkeley when they were in residence.
