About The Artist

Kristy Moreno • Helena, MT

My work focuses on the imagined personas of radicalized future ancestors. The hand crafted ceramics are of fictional characters often resembling feminine personalities paused in space and time. I examine the essence of these future communities through the use of body language and attitudes to further explore themes of rage, empathy and curiosity. Individualizing these characters grants me the freedom to be curious about the influences they might have inherited from past societies, as I try to observe how the past often shapes future worlds. I�d like to imagine that these ancestors survived by decolonizing their way out of patriarchal systems. They are no longer conditioned to believe that they have to live in someone else�s reality that is deemed worthy of living.
