About

Kara Mia Fenoglietto’s work explores the self through mixed media materials in sculptural and installation based form. Often wearable, her pieces explore the notion that garments inform our sense of identity and explore the stereotypes of femininity. Kara received a Bachelor of Fine Art's degree from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Kara is currently a member of the artist collective "Shift", an artist-run co-op art gallery based in Seattle, WA. Her work has most recently been exhibited at the Delaware Contemporary Museum of Art and on Vogue.com.

"The goal of my gallery work is to promote the artistry and counter the perception of fashion as a commodity mass-marketed to women. My process typically begins with concept which I then try to translate via  material. I play with different sewing and fabrication techniques that compliment the themes my work aspires to reflect. I am interested in exposing the subconscious through my approach to color, surface and space. My explorations of self often expose the disconnect between anxieties and appearances. I am interested in the complicated relationships between adornment, femininity, and the physicality of the body in relation to the construction of identity".
