Kristin Skees

The artist Kristen Skees, without doubt, possesses a well-developed sense of the absurd, but to see her Cozy portraits purely in terms of their humor would be far too simplistic. This series of photographs are as much about fiber art and performance, as they are about photography. These eccentric portraits foster an uncanny level of intimacy between the subjects and the viewer. We cannot see these people, but somehow, through staging and use of color, they at once become familiar. These photographs, art first silly are sensitive, psychological portraits. Ultimately, these portraits reveal far more than they conceal.

Kristen Skees accepts portrait commissions.
