During her residency at MacArthur Place, Christina Watka plans to listen to the landscape, let it distill through her, and use this inspiration to conjure new possibilities with shape, composition, balance, and color.

    Christina Watka (b. 1986) is a site-specific, large-scale installation artist. Informed by large systems in nature, such as the movement of herds and flocks, Christina uses natural materials and ceramic to translate these systems into inviting and contemplative artwork. In her most recent series, 'The Lightness of Joy', Watka creates hanging brass and mica sculptures which hypnotically reflect light in a kinetic and meditative display. Christina received her BFA in Studio Art in 2008 from The New England School of Art and Design at Suffolk University.
