To Eli West, the world is a beautiful and disturbing place. In the studio he primarily utilizes soft materials and tactile sensations to create beautifully disturbed art objects for domestic and professional spaces. As a curator he is drawn to grouping artists across disciplines to create unique visual experiences. His work as both artist and curator can be seen regularly at venues throughout the Pacific Northwest, Colorado, Alaska and Berlin, Germany. Currently he is pursuing an MFA in Applied Craft and Design with the Pacific Northwest College of Art and is projected to graduate in 2020.
