CV

Katia Meisinger is a found object sculptor works and lives in Southern Maryland. She has received a BA from St. Mary's College of Southern Maryland, where she currently teaches sculpture, and is currently working towards her MFA from Maryland Institute College of Art. Though she has not exhibited wildly she has had multiple exhibitions at the Boyden Gallery, and the St. Mary's Art Council Gallery. Meisinger creates abstracted works inspired by the world around her. This can be influenced by actions on a global or personal scale, political or emotional impact, and effects from the pandemic. Using found objects in her sculptures is a main component in the artwork because it uses items most people can identify and connect to personally. To speak about something on a large scale she uses items like every day used items like medical masks, chairs, mirrors, or other household objects that helps create a shared moment between the artist, artwork, and the viewer.
