Kristin Casaletto

Kristin Casaletto’s artwork charts an aggressive exploration of the ethics and politics of class, gender, race, and citizenship in a super power nation. Her art springs from an impulse to draw, both as a means of contemplation and of action. The work, often monumentally scaled, fuses high-art media and techniques (painting, printmaking, drawing…) with less orthodox materials and methods (food, insects, found objects, sound, sculpture, collaboration…) to function as parables for a secular age. Her artwork draws on history and allegory as it re-contextualizes icons embedded in American culture to create richly nuanced observations of twenty-first-century life.
