Tess Kisner's Details
About Tess Kisner
Originally from Baton Rouge, multimedia artist Tess Kisner came to Chicago in 2002 to pursue a career in the Arts. An obsession with paper led to a series of collages that would later be considered a reflection of her childhood. When paired with her distinctive “single line” drawing technique, a very primitive but modern aesthetic is created, incorporating the use of everyday materials collected throughout the years. In 2005, she commenced a quest for world travel and began collecting foreign currency – the monetary pieces never fail to emerge in her work. The single line continues to develop, making appearances on album art, flyers and wheat-pastes around the city.
