    photography

    Christina Kerns is a New York City based artist who uses photography to create an alternate world using appropriated imagery. After leaving her home town of Oklahoma City, she moved to Brooklyn and received her BFA in Photography/ minor in Art History from Pratt Institute. She has been published and shown work in New York and London.

    Christina Kerns's dreamlike vignettes are created with appropriated imagery and small props. Using a Technicolor palette that makes the scenarios seem more imaginary than real, the images are initially set up as dioramas. Kerns’s jagged edges and deliberately messy composition mimic the rough way in which our memories are muddled together.

    The images are culled from ideas and pictures we are bombarded with by mass media. Kerns’s mash-ups reflect the way films, games, magazines, and advertisements influence our thoughts and dreams and mesh together to form a skewed reminiscence of one’s past and of reality.

    This work references the surreal and nostalgic sculptures of Joseph Cornell, the Dada collages of Hannah Höch and the postmodern photographs of Laurie Simmons; all of these artists create work with appropriated imagery in order to express societal conventions, stereotypes and clichés. The unrefined, childlike and surprising methods of her constructions simultaneously poke fun at and pass judgment on the follies and foibles of our contemporary world.
