Kirsten Tradowsky

“Painting is a means of excavation. My work starts with a found image, often discarded at an estate sale or buried online. Whether it is a forgotten family snapshot or a stack of dishes, the objects are reanimated through the act of painting. In the process, lines, light, and details are dramatized and diminished, uncovering new meaning that encourages a dialogue across time.”

 

Kirsten’s work has been exhibited throughout the United States, including Kopeikin Gallery in Los Angeles and Red Dot Art Fair in New York. It has been reviewed in the Los Angeles Times and the blog Lenscratch. Kirsten earned a BFA from the Cleveland Institute of Art and an MFA from the California College of the Arts. Kirsten currently lives in San Francisco, CA.
