Krista Bailie is an award-winning visual artist living and working in Vancouver, Canada.

Krista holds a BFA (ECU),a BHK (UBC) and is currently completing a masters in Art History (UBC).

Statement

My work is primarily concerned with the connections between people in the public and private spheres, subverting expectations around interactions between certain structures of power by intervening in the structures themselves. I have been concerned with ideas of attention, exclusion, maternal identity and the psychological implications of the institution.
