Kristina Sparks earned her Bachelor of Fine Art from the School of the Art Institute in 2006. She investigates questions of power and labor in social, political and global settings related to the conception and construction of the home.
Too Good To Be True is a response to the current U.S. housing situation and its effect on social class and perceived status. Reclaimed paint cans are covered with images of foreclosed homes and interrupted by abstract wallpaper patterns referencing the aspiration of the “dream home.” These objects reveal the hidden tragedies that lie underneath the façade of domestic perfection.
