Celine Browning was born and raised in Chicago. In 2011, she graduated from SUNY New Paltz with an MFA in Metals. Using the vocabulary of surrealism and pop-art, Browning deconstructs, combines, and repurposes familiar functional objects, creating an uncanny visual language that reimagines what these objects signify. Her work is deeply informed by her background in Craft and an interest in the diaristic capacity of everyday objects. Many of her recent projects are moored in a sense of local history, using objects and symbols as portraits of an individual or a community. While the core of her creative work is conceptually-based sculpture, she has also worked in wearables, sound installation, and augmented reality. Browning's work is also influenced by her parents: innovative new media artists and activists whose work addresses a range of topics connected with social justice. Browning's work has been exhibited nationally, as well as at the Pinakothek Der Moderne in Munich. She is currently an Affiliate Professor at Grand Valley State University in Michigan.
