Kaitlin West is an interdisciplinary artist who blurs the line between photography and sculpture while creating stable sculptures on the verge of collapse. Kaitlin constructs damaged concrete columns, slabs, and hand-formed bricks used to create walls inspired by architecture’s support structures to convey her internal psychic framework. The surface of her sculptures is distressed but still depicts photographs from urban space. Kaitlin explores how to communicate and convey the interior and exterior of her emotional self in visible terms while bringing me healing emotionally through the process of creating work.

Kaitlin recently graduated from The University of North Texas with her Masters of Fine Arts in Sculpture. She is now working at Samford University, in Birmingham, Alabama, as an Adjunct teaching 3D design. She has exhibited work in galleries such as; Craighead Green Gallery in Dallas, Texas; Alexandria Museum of Art in Alexandria, Louisiana; Stephen Smith Gallery in Birmingham, Alabama; 500X Gallery in Dallas, Texas; Greater Denton Arts Council in Denton, Texas; Meadows Gallery in Tyler, Texas; Birmingham Museum of Art in Birmingham, Alabama. Kaitlin has work at the University of Texas at Tyler and Goggle Works permanent collection.
