“Influenced by The Bauhaus and Constructivism, Barbara Kasten explores modes of reorganizing the visual environment. With geometric shapes, mirrors, glass, lighting gels and a lighting crew recruited from the film industry, she creates abstract interpretations of interior spaces and architectural details. Evident in Architectural Site, The High Museum is Kasten’s use of super-saturated color and dramatic juxtapositions of line, angle, and form.
Barbara Kasten was born in 1936 in Chicago. She received her BFA in painting and sculpture from the University of Arizona in Tucson and her MFA from the California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland. Kasten is the recipient of many prestigious awards, and her work has been widely exhibited by major museums in the United States, Europe, and Japan. Her photographs are in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago; International Center of Photography, New York; Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Museum of Modern Art, New York; Museum of Modern art, Lodz, Poland; and the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, among others. Kasten is a professor of photography at Columbia College Chicago.” found via
“Painting, to me, is a process that is fueled by the need to create. I don’t set out to produce art about one subject or another and never start with a drawing or sketch but with the first application of paint. From then on, the rest follows and like a jazz musician, the music just flows. It begins to take on a life of its own and becomes a part of me for as long as the journey lasts.
The significant challenge then remains when is a painting finished. To me, art is a synthesis of my personal feelings, the colors that inspire me and my materials and techniques. It is only when those parameters are met that the work can truly be considered finished.”
