    October 2011Educators Showcase: Kristin Skees

    Kristin Skees’ artwork combines traditional women’s craft, contemporary DIY culture, and a love of the unexpected and absurd. In her current interdisciplinary project, Cozy Portraits, Kristin creates custom cozies for her photography subjects, who are often close friends and family. Like an ill-fitting handmade sweater, the cozies are about the claustrophobia and absurdity of relationships. Some of the portraits take a week to complete, and some take a year. From beginning to end, the piece is defined by the relationship, dialog, and collaboration with the person being cozied. This work is currently being exhibited in the show Cozied at the University of Alabama at Birmingham’s ArtLab. Kristin received her MFA from the University of Arizona, and also has a MLIS from the University of Alabama. Last year she was awarded an Emerging Educator Fellowship from ITI. Kristin currently teaches Digital Photography, Video Art and 2D Design at Christopher Newport University in Virginia.

    Fan surprise, suddenly oozing beads of sweat on his forehead to his open call out, "Tan little"word, showing that the identity is obtained for cheap true religion jeans Tan Guozi know. Tan is now less happy, not to say that he could not withstand, even if his boss, I'm afraid will not withstand, unless the show this close, since then the company is no longer involved in the Mainland Hao Yi. Otherwise, there will be countless problems.
