Danni O’Brien (she/they) is an interdisciplinary artist based in Baltimore, Maryland. She received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in sculpture from James Madison University in 2014. Her studio practice is rooted in environmentalism, nostalgia, and owned queerness. In the studio, they cycle through continuous acts of deconstruction and reconstruction, and employ assemblage, ceramic handbuilding, paper making, casting, CNC routing, and woodworking, to concoct enigmatic, amalgamated sculptures. O’Brien exhibits these sculptures at venues such as the Museum of Contemporary Art Arlington, Asya Geisberg Gallery, Tephra Institute for Contemporary Art, Pazo Fine Art, and the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art, among others. She has been a visiting artist at the University of Arizona, Towson University, Dickinson College, and Wofford College. She has been awarded residencies with PLOP, The Wassaic Project, Proyecto Ace, Art Farm, Baltimore Clayworks, Red Lodge Clay Center, Azule, and the Maple Terrace. They are the recipient of a 2022 Individual Artist Grant from the Belle Foundation for Cultural Development. O’Brien received a review of her recent solo exhibition “Cross Sections”, with Tephra Institute for Contemporary Art, in The Washington Post in September, 2022. They are an artist in residence at Stove Works in Chattanooga, Tennessee for the months of March and April 2023 and have a solo exhibition of new sculptures at Stone House Art Gallery (SHAG) in Charlotte, North Carolina in April 2023. O’Brien is preparing for group exhibitions with The Belger Arts Center in Kansas City, Missouri and Allegheny College in Meadville, Pennsylvania and will be an artist in residence at the Elizabeth Murray Artist Residency in Granville, New York, and Byrdcliffe Colony in Woodstock, New York, this summer.
