Kristen Letts Kovak: Out of Order

KRISTEN LETTS KOVAK (Pittsburgh, PA), Out of Order
April 22 – May 25, 2024
Kristen Letts Kovak uses the medium of paint to investigate the precarious states of resolution that is a direct outgrowth of living with a rare chronic illness. With these lushly colored abstract paintings on wood panels, Kovak maintains a threadbare link to her background in her representational art background. She writes, her “artworks investigate connections between visual, perceptual and cognitive patterning….us[ing] surface articulations to explore the interplay of representation and abstraction– estranging the familiar and naturalizing the non-objective.” Kovak is faculty at Carnegie Mellon University, and earned her MFA from Maryland Institute College of Art.
