Kristen Egan is a mixed media artist specializing in masks and small sculptures.
Egan has a BFA in Art and Design from the SUNY College of Ceramics at Alfred University.
Her creative process relies on the organic shapes of natural materials like gourds, antlers and tree branches.
Adding details with carved wood, paper clay and acrylic paints, she often juxtaposes bright patterns and ornamentation against raw or weathered surface textures.
The artist explores themes such as evolution, predator-prey relationships, folk art and totemic imagery.
Her pantheon of recurring animal characters are frequently inspired by species native to her home state, or mythologized elements of personal experiences.
Egan’s captivating sculptures and masks lets the observer go wildly into the forest of imagination where totem-like creatures and folktales carve a path from her thoughts to ours.
