Kyla Zoe Rafert is an artist living near Amanda, OH. She earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Rhode Island School of Design and her Master of Fine Arts from the University of Wisconsin, Madison. Set within a meticulously designed world of vanity, beauty, and abundant pattern, Kyla’s pieces often reference fairytales — the feminine and the sublime, hinting at the absurd. The work tiptoes toward being defined as one thing, and then pushes us away, asking us to accept being right at the edge of meaning.
