Bio

Priscilla Dobler is an interdisciplinary artist, living and working in Seattle, WA. Her work explores the politics and representations of identity and the connotations of food related to these issues especially when associated with the home. Influenced by her Scottish, American German and Mayan background she constructs poignant installations, sculptures, film and audio, which focus on the construction of identity. She reconstructs objects with symbolic representations of the different cultures in which she identifies using her environmental surroundings, such as her home, childhood memories, and collaborations with family members. Objects like history are stripped down to their basic fundaments to reinterpret their meaning through new methods of construction. Themes addressed in her work are the tensions of personal struggle with alienation, borders, and how food is served, the imagery of food, social inequality and juxtapositions within architectural spaces and how gender is played within those spaces.  

Her work has been exhibited at Currents New Media, Santa Fe, NM; Whatcom Museum, Bellingham, WA; Gallery 110, Seattle, WA; Columbia City Gallery, Seattle; Soil Gallery, Seattle, WA; Center on Contemporary Art, Seattle, WA; Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art, Peekskill, NY, Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art, New Paltz, NY, Ann Street Gallery, Newburgh, NY, Catalyst Gallery, Beacon, NY, Masters On Main St, Catskill, NY; Cumulus Nimbus Collective at Chashama Gallery, New York, NY; Issues Project Room, Brooklyn, NY and Collaborative Concepts, Saunders Farm, Garrison, NY. 

In addition, she was a 2014 recipient of Grants for Artist Projects from the Artist Trust, 2015 Bailey Award and 2016 the Edwin T. Pratt Scholarship. She is the current Artist-in-Residence at Marfa Contemporary, Marfa, TX. Dobler is a MFA sculpture recipient from the State University of New York at New Paltz, NY.
