Theresa Volpp

Theresa Volpp’s art is heavily based on process—she sees herself both as an image maker and a collector of images. As former graffiti artist, mark making is familiar to her, and the repeated movement of her body in her abstract paintings becomes her signature. She adds another layer to these paintings by adding purposefully disruptive elements. “The surrounding space, be it the canvas itself, a room, or public space (the city) is also important to the artist as it always stands in conversation with the painting or painted elements,” she says.
