BIOGRAPHY

Tammie Rubin's artwork transforms familiar objects into mythic sculptures and installations that explore the gaps between the readymade and the handcrafted object, opening up dream-like spaces of unexpected associations and dislocations. Her ceramic pieces created from slip cast porcelain over everyday objects result in otherworldly constructions that range from the sacred to the whimsical. Rubin’s body of work references the signs and symbols of African American history through a constantly evolving immersion in both process and materials.

Born and raised in Chicago and currently residing in Austin, Texas where she is an Associate Professor of Ceramics & Sculpture at St. Edward’s University, Rubin considers her roles as an artist and an educator to be inextricably linked. As an involved participant in the local arts community, she founded Black Mountain Project along with fellow Austin-based artists Adrian Aguilera and Betelhem Makonnen, and she is a member of ICOSA Collective, a non-profit cooperative gallery. Rubin is Chair of the City of Austin’s Cultural Arts Division Art in Public Places Panel (AIPP), in the city’s department dedicated to the production and promotion of public art.
