Crystal Latimer is a multi-disciplinary artist primarily working in the two dimensional mediums of painting, drawing & collage, but has also extended her recent practice to include ceramic tile. Heavily influenced by her Latina heritage and a lifetime of travel to her mother’s native Costa Rica, her studio practice explores the hybridity and dilution of the Latin American culture. Crystal’s academic studies have been based out of Western Pennsylvania, obtaining her BFA from Slippery Rock University in 2010, a MA from Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP) in 2013, and she will be graduating with her MFA from IUP in Spring 2016. Crystal’s work has recently been published in the December 2015 Issue of Fresh Paint Magazine. Regionally, her work has been shown at Most Wanted Fine Art Gallery, UnSmoke Systems, and 937 Gallery in Pittsburgh. Her international experience includes a group show in Hong Kong, China, as well as an Artist Residency at the Joaquín Chaverri Fábrica de Carretas in Sarchí, Costa Rica, both in the year 2014.
