Artist’s Biography and Statement

Karla Wozniak is an artist based in Brooklyn, NY. She received her BFA from Rhode Island School of Design in 2000 and her MFA from the Yale School of Art in 2005.
Karla's paintings and drawings depict an American landscape defined by automotive culture and the ramifications of suburban sprawl. Her paintings, inspired by road trips, depict places ranging from beach town strips in Florida to suburbs in New Jersey, to big cities like Los Angeles, where buildings and brand names vie for space alongside the vanishing natural landscape.
