About Kristen DeFontes

Through her work Kristen DeFontes investigates the dimensional interplay between physical weight, depth, and structure, engineering sculptural expressions of original drawings and seeking visual routes towards abstraction, metaphor, and the interaction between environment and self. As a creator of relief sculpture, she uses construction debris, natural wood slabs, and cast bronze elements throughout her work. DeFontes cites the 2011 impact of Hurricane Irene on Schoharie County as pivotal to the evolution of her work, and a driving force behind its expansion.
