Teri Frame is a ceramic and performance artist. She works with clay directly on the body to explore human beauty related to race, gender, age and disability.
I was very excited and honored to see both a demonstration and artist lecture on Monday. Her working method is very interesting because of its tactile quality, craft and relation to the human body. And then on top of that, her concepts speak of human binaries that have been present throughout history and are still present today. I am drawn to her work because of the performance element that is intriguing for any type of viewer, not necessarily an artist. Once the viewers are drawn in they can begin to explore the concept, what she is really doing.
