ABOUT THE ARTIST:  Catherine Fairbanks’s work questions empathy, its qualities and its limits as a contemporary construct. Her sculptural work manifests as performance, sound and ceramics, and has been exhibited nationally and internationally.  She received her MFA in Sculpture from the San Francisco Art Institute in 2010 and has attended national and international residencies, including the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, the National Textile Institute in Iceland, where in 2014 she produced her solo exhibition Empathomimesis, and most recently the Wool Factory AIR in Barcelona.  She maintains a dual pursuit as a critical care nurse in an urban medical center and has been a visiting lecturer at Otis College of Art about The Aesthetics of Empathy, and at the UCLA Ronald Reagan Medical Center where she presented a talk titled Art and Empathy.  Fairbanks’s solo exhibition, Two Chimneys, was a critic’s pick in ArtForum in 2016.  She is represented by Wilding Cran Gallery in Los Angeles.
