Audrey LeGalley is a ceramic artist from San Antonio, TX. In 2018, she received her Bachelor of Fine Art from the Southwest School of Art and was awarded the Best in Show title for her senior thesis exhibition. Since then, Audrey has exhibited her work throughout Texas at venues such as Blue Star Contemporary Museum and the Greater Denton Arts Council. She will begin working on her MFA in Studio Art at the University of Texas at San Antonio this coming fall.
Audrey is interested in the relationship between mental health and the domestic. Through the use of porcelain—a material found in nearly every American home, used for tiles, dinnerware, and decoration—she creates objects that express a sense of fear and fragility. By using porcelain in unconventional ways, she opens up an exploration of mental illness, memory, and trauma expressed through the material’s innate fragility. Using hand-building processes, she creates domestic objects and furniture that impart a sense of anxiety in the viewer.
