Selena Barcenas is a Filipina-Canadian interdisciplinary artist living on the unceded traditional territories of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh Nations, Vancouver BC. Drawn by clay’s tactile nature, she explores the interplay between movement and form, drawing parallels between her bodily experiences as a dancer and her ceramic practice.

Artist Statement
Since my first introduction to clay, I’ve gained a deep appreciation for the craft involved in ceramics and its earthly material that invites me to listen and play. It’s similar to the attunement that I’ve developed with my body as a dancer and in return, it has also fueled my practice as an artist and maker. Through clay, I aim to celebrate both the ephemeral quality of its fragile state, and the sense of weighted permanence that stoneware ceramics embody.
