Christina Sadovnikov is an artist currently crafting a life in Richmond, VA. Her practice spans many disciplines including textiles, sculpture, and installation. Her work typically features materials that function differently to their preconceived properties. These materials take on the form of weightless rocks, sticks that melt when burned, coins which will never tarnish, and fabric that becomes stiff over time. Through the process of material bending, she explores the possibilities for forging experiential material relationships to the places we inhabit and to ourselves along with looking into how memory can archive these intimate experiences.

Christina graduated with a BFA in Craft and Material Studies from Virginia Commonwealth University. She has been a resident at Mass MoCA for the Assets for Artists Residency Program. She has been awarded the Merit Scholarship through Oxbow School of Art, the Outstanding Student Award through the Surface Design Association, and the Student Fellowship through Arrowmont School of Crafts. Her work has been featured in numerous exhibitions in places such as Studio Two Three, Anderson Gallery, and VALLT Gallery.
