Ky Anderson’s paintings are personal narratives of layered forms, colored washes and line work that illustrates the visible and invisible connections between the weights, pulls and supports of the landscape around us. Her works are panoramas filled with the addition and subtraction of the painter’s language: overlapping layers of color and texture that hover and fit together to make an individual painting.
Anderson’s practice falls between abstraction, formalism and narrative painting. She has drawn attention to the creation of place or location, a different world filled with color relationships, nuances of formal language, and the choreography of place and implied event. Each painting is an exploration into the endless possibilities of shape, line and color. Layered paint covers previous gestures and thin paint reveals the history of her process.
Ky Anderson’s work has been exhibited at Sherry Leedy (MO), Kathryn Markel (NY), Frosch & Portmann (NY), Look & Listen (FR) and Dolphin Gallery (MO), along with numerous group shows and art fairs in the US and Europe. Anderson lives and works in New York.
