Kim McCarty
Untitled (Orange)

2007

About

Kim McCarty is known for her watercolor on paper pieces, which utilize the wet on wet technique. This necessitates a rapid pace: after a fluid initial application, McCarty allows her paints to rest for just a moment before once again dictating the flow of color across the paper. McCarty does not seek to capture an exact likeness, rather she aims to capture a feeling or expression. There is a very personal feeling to each piece, as if by viewing the being at this moment in time, the viewer is a voyeur, an intruder to the solitude of the painted figure. Kim McCarty was born in Los Angeles, California in 1956. She graduated with her MFA from the University of California at Los Angeles, and her BFA from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. Her recent solo and group exhibitions include the Santa Monica Museum of Art (Santa Monica, CA), the Pasadena Museum of Art (Pasadena, CA), David Klein Gallery (Detroit, MI) and Morgan Lehman Gallery (New York, NY). Her work is in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the UCLA Hammer Museum, and the Honolulu Academy of Art, among others. Her work has been featured in major publications including Architectural Digest, Vogue, Huffington Post, LA Times, Art on Paper, Artnews, and The New York Times. Materials: Watercolor on paper This work is unframed.
