ABOUT THE WORK
This edition is part of our inaugural Curator Series. Curated by Saša Bogojev and debuted at CAN Art Fair 2022.
Too much world! Refusal, violence, decoration, decay all contained in a face in a frame or hiding behind it. Or served on a tray or edged with tasseled fringe. Katelyn Ledford creates abstract feminist portraits that are preoccupied with the “destruction of domesticity.” Her unrestrained paintings are shot through with historical and personal reference, and embrace our present with wicked glee.
In Subtle As A Brick Through a Window, Ledford’s hand-finished print series created in collaboration with Exhibition A, there is nowhere to hide. We’re being sent a message etched into a brick—or are we sending it? Has this happened before? All that’s certain is painter’s tape is a poor way to piece together broken glass.
Katelyn Ledford is an artist living and working in Boston, Massachusetts, but born and bred in the American South. She received her MFA in Painting at the Rhode Island School of Design in 2019. She has been featured in exhibitions internationally with solo exhibitions at Aishonanzuka in Hong Kong and DUVE Berlin in Germany in 2021. Select group exhibitions include those at The Museum of Museums (Seattle) Monya Rowe Gallery (New York) Unit London (London) WOAW Gallery (Hong Kong) and Plan X Art Gallery (Milan).
