Inspired by anatomy and biology, Kaitlin Waldera uses pattern, texture, and transparency to create works of art that draw the audience's attention to their anatomy and health. Primarily a printmaker, Waldera utilizes layers on multiple surfaces that interact with each other via their transparent nature or cutting away information to reveal what is below. Experimenting with mixed media and fiber arts, Waldera works toward creating art objects that convert the disturbing quality of our insides into something the audience wants to touch and handle. After growing up in Minnesota and getting a liberal arts education she became interested in how art and science interact. The goal of her work is to create a transition between the medical field and potential patients to ease the nerves and apprehensions that arise between the two.
