Karla García is a Texas-based artist originally from Mexico, who creates sculptural landscape installations crafted from clay. Her thought-provoking artwork is deeply rooted in her Mexican heritage, including her personal and ancestral history. Through her research-based approach, she explores the enduring resilience of our humanity by observing the effects of the environment on the landscapes that surround us.

García earned an MFA in Ceramics and a Museum Education Certificate from the University of North Texas in May 2019. García exhibits nationally and internationally, and has received multiple awards, including the Nasher Artist Grant, the Top Prize at Artspace 111, and the US Consulate in Mexico award for her binational exhibition, “La Línea Imaginaria.” García has been published in the 2023 Fall issue of the Nasher Magazine, Scallawag Magazine, Glasstire, and NPR: Morning Edition, among others. Her recent work includes the Cell Series exhibition “When the Grass Stands Still” at the Old Jail Art Center in Albany, Texas, and the public art sculpture “Seed the Future” at Trail Drivers Park in Fort Worth, Texas.
