Kayla Rumpp creates work inspired by the relationship between painting and sculpture with a childlike approach to ingenuity and invention. Materials, color, texture, form, and light all play key parts in the sensory experience created for the viewer. Conventional materials, such as wooden popsicle sticks, are reimagined in their use to create provoking, interactive works.
Rumpp says about her work, “My hope is to create an immersive work that confronts the viewer to experience the piece with an altered perception that is slowly formed and evolves in time with the piece.”
Kayla Rumpp is an artist and educator currently based in Iowa City, IA, as she pursues her MFA. She earned her BFA from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville and graduated with her MS in Art Education in 2017.
