Jennie Kiessling

I was born and raised in Chicago. I started as a student at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) at the age of 16 and remained there as an undergrad in painting,then became an administrator and adjunct faculty there until 1996. During my time at SAIC I completed a Masters at the University of Chicago in the Social Sciences. In 2000 I moved to the Mountain States of Wyoming and then Colorado, where I currently live and teach as adjunct faculty at a local community college. I have been exhibiting and teaching since 1985. The content of my work is about the visual language that comes from an aesthetic intersection found in the teaching and writing of D.T. Suzuki and the writings and painting of Agnes Martin and Ad Reinhardt. My work is purely abstract with the most simple materials possible; graphite and acrylic paint on wood panel. My studio practice is located at Artworks Loveland in Loveland CO.
