Born and raised in southern New Jersey, Chris Dufala received his BFA in Ceramics from Rowan University and his MFA in Spatial Arts/Ceramics at San Jose State University. He has exhibited work nationally and abroad in group and solo exhibitions, most recently at NCECA 2012. He currently resides in Buffalo New York, where his studio practice involves ceramic sculpture, works on paper, and the investigation of the ceramic monotype.

My artwork is an organization of objects that reflect an imitation of reality. As a whole they represent a relationship between domestication and the natural world. Their physical appearance belies their actual ceramic nature, much as the objects they represent belie their waste and convenience. This notion of deception is important to me as it resonates with everything in this world I find dishonest, contrary, and generally lacking integrity. I am not trying to find a solution, but simply commenting on that which I observe.
