Britta Nylen is an artist and maker from Minneapolis, MN. Britta employs visual poetics through exploring the storied history and essence of materials. She works in a diverse range of mediums including metal, wood, paint and found objects, which take on 2D, 3D or virtual forms. She is fascinated by cycles of destruction and creation that are both natural and man-made. Her aim is to tease out stories that explore and challenge our ideas of humanity, violence and identity. She worked as a foundry assistant in the studio of Minneapolis bronze sculptor Nicholas Legeros. Britta has studied with renowned German sculptor Hannes Brunner from the Wiessensee Academy in Berlin. She is also a member of the newly established Zhoosh Collective.
