Kretz, known for powerful and politically charged work, is a Washington DC based artist who was recently banned from Facebook and Instagram for her series of work constructed entirely of MAGA hats that have been ripped apart and reconstructed. “The works are meant to both call out wearers who claim the hats to be innocuous, and to sound the alarm that history is repeating itself”. Kretz attended the Sorbonne in Paris, and obtained a BFA in drawing and painting from Binghamton University. She earned an MFA from the University of Georgia in Athens, GA. This will be her first solo exhibition with Jen Tough Gallery.
