Ileana Alarcon is a ceramic artist working primarily in large scale sculpture. She studied ceramics at Maine College of Art, and received a BFA in 2018. Alarcon enjoys creating surreal environments into which the viewer is invited to partake in the experience of being in another world. She uses ceramic glaze chemistry to push the boundaries of texture on her objects and colour theory to create an atmosphere that feels alive. Her recent work is focused on the feeling of belonging and not belonging at the same time and creating a world that evokes that feeling in the viewer.
