Barbara Kasten

Studio Construct 118, 2011, Archival pigment print, 43.75x53.75 in

A student mentioned Barbara Kasten with regards to my recent work. I guess my constructed still life series triggered a connection. Kasten was new to me. I discovered she had an amazing ability to create simple installations with strong illusionistic effect. Her minimal use of light is quite effective on the reflective surfaces of her objects. I’m very impressed by her studio work.
