Annie Kielman is a recent graduate from the University of Maryland with a Bachelor of Arts Degree; as a native to the Washington DC area, she has worked with numerous galleries and artist collectives from across the District, building a reputation for being an active participant in the art community.
Her work stems from an exploration of a deliberate distortion of the human form—not in a violent or grotesque manner, but rather with subtle tweaks that create intrigue simply because they are counter-intuitive. She stresses her discovery of the ease with which something can become strange: how facile exaggerations can become abnormal, or how trivial manipulations or replications can evolve into something unfamiliar. She explores this theme primarily through the creation of two-dimensional prints as well as sculptural works that simultaneously probe the idea of delicate perversion of commonplace aesthetics.
