Kari Rives

Kari Rives says:  “Having studied at the Museum School in Boston, then Skowhegan in Maine, I was  trained to value honesty of intention and a critical eye on quality in my work.  As subjects, I have long been drawn to animals; they are a vital presence in many of our lives and the object of legend and cultural expression here in the Southwest.  Clay adores gesture, so I leave most evidence of my touch as texture,  working quickly to establish physicality and maintain a sense of breath within my forms.  In an uncertain, I would prefer my work to project  kindness over confrontation.”
