Kathleen Markowitz

Kathleen Markowitz lives and works in Richmond, Virginia.

She began painting soon after receiving an MS degree in Gerontology from Virginia Commonwealth University.She later studied at the Accademia Di Bella Arti Pietro Vannucci in Pergia, Italy and with the New York School of Visual Arts study abroad program in Barcelona, Spain.

Her work was chosen by the Art in Embessies Program for exhibit in Pretoria, South Africa and Hong Kong. She also exhibited at the Tashkent 5th International Biennale of Contemporary Art, Artificum Humanitas, in Uzbekistan, 2009. Her work can be found in many collections including Media General, Federal Reserve Bank and Capital One Corporate Collection.

Kathleen tends to work in series moving between several mediums: monotype, collage and oil painting. She likes the sheer physicality of making a painting and the tactile engagement of materials. She is drawn to texture, markings, and subtle renderings of a previous picture plane. She thinks of her working surface as layered space.

She is represented by Page Bond Gallery.
