Statement

 

My work looks both forward and back in time,. I employ techniques and strategies from painting's history to describe the present anthropocene age where all of nature is touched by humans and all humans are touched by technology.

A set and costume designer by training, K.A. Letts brings an unusual skill set to her paintings and drawings.  The artist has absorbed the influence of early 20th century European masters and has combined them with techniques and imagery from aboriginal art, outsider and street art to create a unique visual language. Her erudite yet accessible figurative works are tightly crafted, carefully drawn, deeply felt.

 K.A. Letts is a graduate of Barnard College (B.A.) and Yale Drama School (M.F.A.) She currently divides her time between Chicago and her farm in rural Michigan.

She is an Inter/National Alumna Artist at A.I.R. Gallery (www.airgallery.org) in Brooklyn, N.Y., and has shown her work recently at Hatch Art (Hatchback 8) in Hamtramck, at 555 Galleries in Detroit and at Non-Fiction Gallery (Re:Tale) in Savannah GA.  Her work will be exhibited at the Toledo Art Museum from November 21, 2014 through January 2015.
