Chris Oliver is a sculptor who has recently relocated to Seattle from Ithaca, New York. He received his BA/Sculpture from Marlboro College and his MFA/Sculpture from SUNY Albany. Working in a variety of media ranging from minute 3-D prints to large hand-built permanent outdoor installations that shape their environment over time, his work examines the fine line between sculpture and common objects through manipulations of scale and context.
Oliver’s work has been exhibited both throughout the northeast and nationally. Most recently, he installed large-scale pieces at The Wassaic Project in Wassaic, New York, I-Park in East Haddam, Connecticut, and The Sculpture Center in Cleveland, Ohio. He has taught sculpture at Cornell, SUNY Binghamton, SUNY Albany, Marlboro College and Ithaca College. Oliver currently serves as full time sculpture faculty at Bellevue College.
