Kristin Casaletto’s art centers on socio-political challenges of twenty-first-century life in a super-power nation, addressing power imbalances (racial, economic, gendered) or perilous trends (nationalism, complacency) as perceived from her position within a working-class, mixed-race family. Her innovative approaches to drawing, painting, printmaking, and monumental scale investigate the complex relationships among corruption and redemption, justice and injustice.
The work dives deeply into both formalist and conceptual concerns to suggest multiple meanings. It alludes to the cumulative effects of history on the shape of contemporary society.
