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.

In this new series, called "Anonymous" McCarty paints silhouettes of men and women.

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.
