Kristen Schiele

Artist Bio

Kristen Schiele works in painting, collage and scenic installations. Having taught printmaking at the Corcoran School of Art in Washington DC and studied stop-animation in Berlin, Germany, Schiele includes a range of technical inspiration for her work.

With her new body of paintings, silkscreen, painting and ink transfers create a disjointed, densely layered effect. Compositions are cut apart, x-rayed and reassembled. Stages are set and cast with subjects straight from erotic horror movies of the 70s, pulp novel and fashion magazine covers. The final works are designed and decorated environments in which the “bad girl” clearly holds all the cards – if not a knife.
