Kassandra Palmer is an artist from Green Bay, Wisconsin.  Before pursuing her career as an artist, she graduated summa cum laude from Santa Clara University with a degree in Physics.  Kassandra is currently completing her MFA in Painting and Drawing from the University of Iowa. After graduation, Kassandra will be moving to Madison, Wisconsin with her husband and their three cats.

In her own words:

My work consists of small predicaments that freely oscillate between figuration and abstraction.  Made from combinations of wood, clay, paint, paper, and graphite, each of these constructions is an excavated artifact from the wilderness of a mind. Reaching confusedly to a great possible nothing, these things are dirty windows—carriers for reflections that dare to dance themselves across a dull surface.  Lonesome and silly, these paradoxical propositions exist for the hope of seeing the shadow of an unseeable thing.

In my practice as an artist, I make room for the survival of the unexpected, and I listen for echoes that ring true but do not compute.
