Edith Garcia's work draws you into an alluring world of drawing, installation and sculpture. She focuses on the unique individual experiences throughout our lifetimes, the minimal occurrences that transpire each day, addressing contemporaneous issues specific to the human condition and grafts them into site-specific installations and objects. Her body of work has been exhibited throughout North America, Mexico and Europe, in spaces such as the Gimpel Fils, MK Gallery, Northern Clay Center, Escuela Nacional de Artes Plasticas and is included in the permanent Sculpture Garden of the Archie Bray Foundation, Montana.
