BIO / Christine Rebhuhn received a BA from Kalamazoo College in 2011 and an MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art in 2015. She most recently participated in a residency at the Vermont Studio Center. Her work has been shown at the Cranbrook Art Museum and Gyeonggi International Ceamic Biennale in Korea, and is now part of the permanent collection at the Korean Ceramic Foundation. 

ARTIST STATEMENT / My work draws on our immediate capacity to find resemblance between things, and the interval between this moment and applied meaning. I‘ve chosen to work with ubiquitous subjects that come from the real, material world – misaligned into a reality that can’t be managed. There’s a circulation of logic that doesn’t give way to beginning or end, which came first – the knowledge of illusion or the belief in a system. Perhaps the perception of real things can become blurred in deceit, and it is not so easy anymore to define which part is the image or the reconstruction, even if we know on a cognitive level exactly what things are. I think there is ambiguity in what we don’t know that we know. Even when all of the information is made visible, we allow ourselves to indulge in the illusion. I’m captivated by the delicate physical texture that lies within the process of making these decisions, over and over again.
