Kristen Roles


Kristen is currently making fragile images, susceptible objects, and contingent gestures in Albuquerque while teaching photography and pursuing her MFA from the University of New Mexico. She wants her work to hover along the edge of existence, though it exists concretely enough to have been featured in publications including Creative Loafing Magazine and the Lenscratch States Project and included in group exhibitions at the Centre Gallery and William & Nancy Oliver Gallery in Tampa, Florida; The Center for Fine Art Photography in Fort Collins, Colorado; and most recently as an invited artist for The Santa Fe Art Project curated by SCUBA Collective. She was recently honored as a 2017 SITE Scholar and will exhibit this year at such venues as Form & Concept in Santa Fe and 516 Arts in Albuquerque. She received her BFA in Studio Art and a BA in Psychology from the University of South Florida in 2014 and hurdled directly into grad school with very little life experience outside of academia. She hopes you'll visit to keep alive the work of a brilliant artist/human with whom she shared too little time in this world.
