Kristen creates work in a variety of disciplines including printmaking, sculpture, drawing and photography.
When working, Kristen finds ways to engineer sculptural expressions of her drawings while seeking visual routes toward abstraction, metaphor and the interaction between environment and self.
Her recent assemblages investigate the dimensional interplay between physical weight, depth and structure. To build this work, she often uses construction debris and extracted parts from her flood damaged home. Kristen’s sculptural pieces embody her emotional responses and coping mechanisms. She sees this work as objects that hold power; not only in the symbolic sense, but in the way they provide a tangible link between past and present.
Kristen lives and works in New York.
