Central Piedmont Community College in Charlotte, NC, Offers Works by Kirsten Tradowsky

Central Piedmont Community College in Charlotte, NC, is presenting an exhibit of works by Kirsten Tradowsky, on view in the CPCC Pease Gallery, through July 3, 2014.

The San Francisco artist takes inspiration from the past, specifically the objects that represent a person’s history and placement in life. Tradowsky paints objects she finds in the “for sale” section of Craigslist, capturing the quality of the seller’s photographic presentation in all its awkwardness, overexposure and strange angles. Using loose brushstrokes, she sympathetically renders these unwanted items in both rich and faded hues, delicately revealing the imperfections of time. Tradowsky’s artwork seeks to bring quality and validation to these objects and to painting itself.

Tradowsky received a BFA from The Cleveland Institute of Art and an MFA from the California College of the Arts. She has exhibited nationally and has been featured in Wallpaper Magazine, New American Paintings Magazine, and popular art blogs Design* Sponge and The Jealous Curator.

This is Tradowsky’s first exhibition in the Southeast.
