808 Building

Caitlin Keogh’s work explores questions of gender and representation, articulations of personal style, and the construction of artistic identity. Her vivid, seductive paintings combine the graphic lines of hand-drawn commercial illustration with the bold matte colors of the applied arts to reimagine fragments of female bodies, natural motifs, pattern, and ornamentation. Drawing from clothing design, illustration, and interior decoration as much as art history, Keogh’s large-scale canvases dissect elements of representations of femininity with considerable wit, pointing to the underlying conditions of the production of images of women. Keogh is a graduate of the Milton Avery Graduate School of The Arts at Bard and the Cooper Unioni School of Art in New York. Her work has been exhibited at Mary Boone Gallery, MoMA PS1, the Whitney Museum of America Art, the Queens Museum, and the Renwick Gallery, among others. Her work will be on view in a solo exhibition at the Institute of Contemporary Art Boston this spring.
