Kristina Schmidt: Spring 2020 Featured Artist

Kristina Schmidt

Kristina Schmidt is a painting and multi-media artist based in Munich, (DE) and New York City, (USA). Kristina's work spans across mediums, from paintings to sound, objects to video, and performances to collaboration. She employs traditional fine art techniques and materials, as well as strategies and logics appropriated from Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Culture and video games. By utilizing various sequential repetitions and continuous, playful wit, Kristina connects her formally dissimilar works to a bigger picture, tracing the artist’s role and the commoditized nature of an artwork.
