Kasia Sosnowski is an artist from southern Alberta - she graduated with a combined BFA in Art History & Museum Studies and Art Studio from the University of Lethbridge in 2014. Her work focuses on how clay embodies ideas around care, fragility, and transformation. She draws from individual experiences as a means to explore difficult ideas around transgressive bodies, grief, and recovery. The content she explores is mirrored in the precarity and material flux of ceramic sculpture - fragile and vulnerable yet crystalline. Her use of absurdity and humour is a method to cultivate access and intimacy. She is currently living in Toronto, Ontario where she is an MFA Candidate at York University.
