Collyn Ahren is currently an MFA candidate at Parsons Fine Arts and received a BFA from Sierra Nevada College where she was chosen for the Perspectives On Design Award. Collyn employs installation and performance to revive an embodied practice with ceramics. She allows the material and the body to collaborate in an endeavor of catharsis. Her current work concerns notions of trauma and redefining social and structural aspects of healing. Collyn has exhibited work in group shows such as the California Conference for the Advancement of Ceramic Art and NCECA Pittsburgh.
