Biography

Kaylie Kaitschuck (b. 1995, Dearborn, MI) received her BFA from The College for Creative Studies and her MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art. She uses machine embroidery to draw with yarn and create fantastical yet overwhelming landscapes. These embroideries serve as her own chaotic maps that hold no real navigational route or exit. Drifting through realities of real and fake, they are an archive of thought, routine, and memory that may or may not have ever existed. She has exhibited at Parsons The New School, NYC; Playground Detroit, Detroit, MI, and KO Gallery; Hamtramck, MI. She is a recipient of The Red Bull House of Arts Microgrant, The Robert C. Larson Art, Design, and Architecture Venture Award, and is published in New American Paintings MFA edition. She lives and works in Detroit, Michigan.
