Ceramics is my medium of choice. Clay connects me with the earth and spirit, and the making process grounds me. My sculptures explore elements of nature and the body. I include discarded and found items in my practice and make functional ceramics as well.

I sold my first sculptural piece at 15 and immediately recognized how art objects become a conduit. I thrive in the joy others feel through connecting with my work; mixed-media, painting, drawing, ceramic utilitarian wares etc.

As a woman, an artist, and a female that has experienced sexual deviance every decade, I am heavily influenced by my past and the injustices that women continue to face.
At present I find myself assessing and recontextualizing my observations. Some work question and confront morality, power roles, patriarchy, and the objectification of women.

Louise Joséphine Bourgeois said it best; "Art Is My Sanity" and I agree.

I wish to thank the Manitoba Arts Network for choosing Latent Injuria, 2018, as part of the Manitoba Touring Show for 2020-2022.

I also want to thank MAWA and The Winnipeg Arts Council (WAC) for the grants I have received to date.

I am active in the arts community and a long-standing member of Mentoring Artists for Women's Art (MAWA).

Interested in learning more about pottery? Join me for private lessons. Friday or Saturday date night. See info on IG horsing_around_in_the_mud and DM me.

Warm Regards,

Loricia Pacholko
