Kaylie Kaitschuck

b. 1995, Michigan


Kaylie Kaitschuck’s tapestries, innovatively stitched on an industrial sewing machine, burst with colorful seas of man-made and natural objects in a non-judgmental agglomeration that frees our overloaded psyches. Her stream-of-consciousness compositions embrace a tension between highly stylized drawing, whimsical aesthetics and meticulous construction. Like scribbles in the margins of a textbook, they evoke both the carefree nature of an idealized adolescence and the very real and impactful anxieties associated with the coming-of-age experience in the American Midwest. Kaitschuck’s works serve as her own chaotic maps that hold no distinct navigational route or exit. Drifting through both real and fictional narratives, they are an archive of thought, routine and memory.

Kaitschuck’s solo exhibition at PLATO is scheduled for June 2024. Her work has recently been exhibited in solo and two-person exhibitions at Gaa Projects, Cologne, Germany; Hiromart Gallery, Tokyo, Japan; Baby Blue Gallery, Chicago, IL; Playground Detroit, Detroit, MI; Gaa Gallery, Provincetown, MA; and KO Gallery, Hamtramck, MI. Kaitshuck's tapestries have been featured in group exhibitions at PLATO, NY; Gaa Gallery, Provincetown, MA; Library Street Collective, Detroit, MI; Center Galleries, Detroit, MI; Cranbrook Art Museum, Bloomfield Hills, MI; SCOPE MIAMI (Playground Detroit), Miami, FL; NADA, New York; Forum Gallery, Bloomfield Hills MI; KO Gallery, Hamtramck, MI; Detroit Artist Market, Detroit, MI; Pioneer Square, Seattle, WA; and the Parsons The New School, New York, NY, among others.


Kaitschuck is a recipient of the Detroit Artist Talent Fund, The Red Bull House of Arts Microgrant, The Robert C. Larson Art, Design, and Architecture Venture Award, and is published in New American Paintings Midwest and MFA Editions. She lives and works in Detroit, Michigan.
