  • Artist Biography

    Keltie Ferris

    American • 1977

    Brooklyn-based artist Keltie Ferris is most famous for large-scale paintings covered in layers of spray paint and hand-painted geometric fields. Ferris creates perceptual depth through a distinctive use of light and shapes. Her work often gives the illusion of a pixelated landscape though it remains abstract in its final form. While spray paint is typically associated with graffiti or temporary, "on-the-go" artistic practices, Ferris harnesses its dynamism to create stable, highly intricate scenes from combinations of vibrant colors.

    She also uses her own body as a tool, covering it in oil and paint and pressing it against the canvas. She repeats this process numerous times to record her own trace as a slow but visible disappearance of the artist into the work.
