ABOUT Brittany Kiertzner
Brittany Kiertzner is a mixed media and textile fine artist from Southern California. Kiertzner is an enrolled member of the St Regis Mohawk Tribe and studied fine art at California State University Fullerton. Kiertzner explores critical materials that reframe her personal history into a contemporary context. Through a dynamic interplay of woven and stitched threads, her work is influenced by traditional Mohawk Iroquois splint basket making and embroidery. She investigates themes of regeneration, authenticity and subversion of materials through synthesizing the past. Kiertzner has shown her mixed media and textile-based work extensively in solo and juried exhibitions in California since 2007. She resides and manages her studio in Claremont, California.
