Geoff Booras (b. 1982) is focused on producing experimental ceramics, painting, and sculpture in many forms. His practice contemplates the puzzling relationship humans have with nature, looking specifically to land-use, resource extraction, as well as the history of science and exploration. His work has been shown at Trestle Gallery, Brooklyn; Haw Contemporary, Kansas City; and The Museum of Longing and Failure in Germany.
Booras has been artist-in-resident at Mass MoCA, Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, Anderson Ranch Art Center, Arctic Circle Residency, Wassaic Project, Banff Art Centre, and The Rockefeller Foundation’s Pocantico Residency.
He holds masters degrees from Harvard University (EdM) and State University of New York at New Paltz (MFA) and studied geology at Skidmore College (BA). He apprenticed under sculptor, Toshiko Takaezu.
