Tristyn Bustamante holds an MFA from Arizona State University and a BFA with a minor in Art History from Northern Arizona University. She has attended residencies and workshops in places such as, The Armory Art Center in West Palm Beach, Florida and The International Ceramics Studio in Hungary. Her work involves the use of clay and other materials to produce carefully planned, yet intuitively designed objects with a systematic quality addressing ambiguous purposes and identities. Tristyn has exhibited regionally and nationally, as well as a few locations abroad. After some time teaching as an Instructor of Art Foundations at different colleges and universities in Arizona and as a Studio Director at the Armory Art Center, Tristyn has begun to pursue residencies again. The work for this exhibition, Postbiological Mutations, was produced at her most recent stay with New Harmony Clay Project in Indiana. This fall Tristyn will be working as a resident artist at the Ceramics Creation Center of Clayarch Gimhae Museum in South Korea. Tristyn is appreciative to have had the support of family, friends, and art enthusiasts throughout these endeavors, most significantly her immediate family.
