“By combining the familiarity of the human form with unexpected elements, I make figurative ceramic sculptures that contend with the classical definition of the genre. My work externalizes and distorts emotion, inviting the viewer to investigate, empathize, and connect with it from a new perspective.”
Corran Shrimpton is a figurative ceramic sculptor from Syracuse, NY. She received her BFA with a minor in Philosophy from Alfred University. She is the recipient of the Lisa Elwell Ceramic Artist Endowed Encouragement Award and has exhibited throughout the US. She has worked at the Saratoga Clay Arts Center in Saratoga Springs, NY and the Armory Art Center in West Palm Beach, FL as the Sculpture Artist in Residence. She is inspired by the quiet intimate moments one experiences
in solitude. By externalizing these feelings through countenance, distortion, and symbolic textures, she creates sculptures that prompt the viewer to reexamine the relationship between their own physical body and emotional interiority.
