KAT FLYN
 is a self-taught assemblage sculptor, presently working out of her La Jolla, California studio and exhibiting in San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New Orleans. She separates herself from other assemblage artists in that her pieces always have a political or cultural narrative to them rather than being surreal or abstract; and she only employs “saved” as opposed to “found” objects in her work. Even when using artifacts from earlier centuries, her theme is almost always about contemporary America – social injustice, racism, sexism, and violence – aspects of our national psyche – which have their seeds planted in our past but exist in the present. The baseball artworks are visual essays that touch upon the theme of racial segregation in sports: sports, especially baseball, serve as a convenient metaphor for our society as a whole.
