About Ashley Ann Kerr
Born in Sweetwater Tennessee, Ashley Kerr lives and works in upstate New York. She is currently a graduate student at Alfred University in the Sculpture and Dimensional Studies program. Kerr graduated Summa Cum Laude with her BFA from Florida Atlantic University where she also received a BS in Computer Science. She was selected as an Honorable Mention in the International Sculpture Center’s 2016 Outstanding Student Achievement in Contemporary Sculpture Award program. Her work deals with the nature of expectation and a person's need to maintain a consistent internal logic as it pertains to media, materials and experiences as well as the intersection of gender, technology, sculpture, femininity, and masculinity. By subverting those very expectations, she aims to create sculptural fictions that reveal the underlying structures and mechanisms of how we experience the world and thereby expose truths, however small or large they may be.
