Using acrylic and gouache on paper, Kit Warren’s dense, shimmering paintings often begin with images found in biological and geographic forms. Whether looking inside or out, at blood cell or landmass, Warren’s work plays with the relationship between pattern and scale. Small patterns intimate the behavior of larger; repetition unifies. Much in the way that millions of microscopic cells make up a drop of blood, or thousands of blades of grass make up a green patch of earth, random repetitions eventually coalesce into larger patterns.
Kit Warren lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. Her work has been shown nationally and is in numerous private collections. She was recently awarded a fellowship at VCCA, and is featured in Works and Days Quarterly.
