Paula Kamps

Poet and painter Paula Kamps’ works are uncomfortable and incomplete reveries. The artist employs a wet-on-wet, ink-on-canvas technique and a two-part studio process that relies on indeterminate outcomes; the resulting compositions feature figures and faces formed out of spills of color, with arms and hands emerging from masses of pigment. Kamps' work explores fabulation, treating the artist as a disjointed narrator whose recollections are eventually occluded by the passage of time.
