BIO:

For Kirsten Tradowsky, painting is a means of excavation. Her work begins 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.
