Statement

 

To contact me directly about my work email kaletts@arborart.com 

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 Artist at A.I.R. Gallery (www.airgallery.org) in Brooklyn, N.Y., and a member of Detroit Artists Market (www.detroitartistsmarket.org) in Detroit, Mi.  

Eleven paintings by the artist will be featured from May 31-June 22 in a solo exhibition in the Pop-up ArtLoop space at 202 S. State St in Chicago, IL.
