Born in rural Ohio in 1977, New York City based artist Kristin Jai Klosterman is best known for her sculptural work in metal and wood, and mixed media paintings that deal with the energy, environment and movement. Her large-scale metal sculptures can be found in public forums in California, Texas, Tennessee and Minnesota. She has had one-person exhibitions in Tokyo, New York and Los Angeles and has participated in many group exhibitions in Los Angeles and New York. She has collaborated with the stylish Tom's Shoe Company where her imagery was prominently featured in one of their international campaigns.
Since 2006, Klosterman has been collaborating with Venice based Light and Space artist, Laddie John Dill and has realized numerous monumental sculpture commissions all over the United States.
Klosterman has been developing her own process of contrasting elements, on one side the hard materials of the sculptural series and on the other side the soft delicate silks and fabrics of her canvases, meticulously hand painted, drawing from imagery she creates inspired by the Fibonacci Sequence. Both sculpture and painting series’ resonate with movement and balance while using contrasting materials and methods. These combinations of different natural elements further define the balance of the feminine and masculine embedded in her work.
