Marika Christofides, MFA
Visiting Assistant Professor
Marika Christofides holds an MFA from the University of Kentucky and a BA in Philosophy from Carleton College.
Her artworks draw on the material histories of mid century feminine-coded print ephemera: greeting cards, sewing packets, and recipe books - which she uses to create digital collages. Through a process of repetitive mirroring, images of objects like flowers and aprons acquire an otherworldly quality and become removed from their original context. She translates these collages into print and installation works that explore feminist-philosophical questions through the lens of science fiction world-building. She taught as Instructor of Record at the University of Kentucky from 2019-2022, and worked as an associate acquisitions editor at the University of Illinois Press from 2013-2019. Her work has most recently been exhibited at The Parachute Factory (Lexington, KY), Skylab Gallery (Columbus, OH), the Sechrest Art Gallery at High Point University (High Point, NC), and Artist Image Resource (Pittsburgh, PA).
