BIOGRAPHY

A native Iowan, Kristen Neveu moved to Chicago six years ago. She is a member of both Woman Made Gallery and the Chicago Artists Coalition. Her found object collages have been exhibited at Eclectic Junction Gallery in Bucktown, and Fourth World Artisans. Kristen created two cows for last year’s Cows On Parade in Chicago, Muddy Holly and Peggy Moo, located at Ed Debevic’s. Past exhibits include the Bucktown Arts Fest, Around the Coyote, the Fun Show at Paper Boy Gallery, and several juried group shows at Woman Made Gallery. During the weekdays, she works as a Senior Photo Researcher at Tony Stone Images/Getty Communications in Chicago.

A self-taught mixed media artist, Kristen combines metallic paint and found objects into layered collages, creating pieces of recycled art that are reminiscent of jeweled fossils. Tools, toys, salvaged wood, magazines and textbooks from the 1950’s and 1960’s, mirrors, wire, and metal are some of the materials she uses to create 2D and 3D collages and sculptures.

Kristen grew up in Iowa and worked in a lumberyard to earn extra money while in school. She graduated from the University of Iowa in 1991 with degrees in Communication Studies and Anthropology. Her art reflects her fascination with discovery, the past, and the material culture we live in.

 

Anatomically Correct is a non-profit corporation dedicated to showcasing work by artists in public spaces in a combined effort to educate, diversify and promote community awareness of the visual and performing arts.
