Katarina Riesing is a NY-based multi-disciplinary artist. A native of Knoxville, TN, she now teaches in the School of Art and Design at Alfred University in western NY, where she also maintains a studio practice. Katarina received her BA from Smith College and her MFA from the University of Wisconsin in Madison.
Katarina’s work looks at the figure and self-portraiture in humorous and awkward ways, using silk as a surface to paint and embroider images of fragmented and strange bodies. She recently completed a residency at the Vermont Studio Center and the Iceland Textile Center in Blonduos Iceland.
