Artist's Biography

Schattenfield-Rein grew up the youngest of seven children in the suburbs of Washington D.C. As a teenager, she was immersed in the subculture of D.C.’s punk scene, while studying painting and drawing at the Corcoran Museum of Art. With a BFA in fine art from Bard College, Kristin moved to New York City, where she worked closely for many years with Matthew Barney as his production manager. Moving to Philadelphia in 2008, she embraced the creative community of the diverse art scene. Thought of as a process maker, the act of making the work is as important as the final result. Her latest work is concentrated on varied materials, mainly epoxy resin, glass, sand, graphite flake and silvered tar. The current pieces adhere – just barely – to the convention of wall hangings; they creep past their edges, becoming sculptural and suggestive of something beyond the obvious. Her work is recognized nationally and internationally, and is widely exhibited and collected. Schattenfield-Rein currently lives and works in Philadelphia with her husband and two children.

Artist's Statement

I'm a mark maker. I add layer after layer, mark after mark, adding and subtracting until a moment of grace is achieved.
