Kathy Halper

The feelings of insanity, anxiety and fear that have permeated our lives since November 2016 are the inspiration for each of these narrative paintings. I chose to “conspire” with Russian folk art for my stylistic direction as a nod to our current “symbiotic” relationship, as well as my family heritage. While some images may directly reference news events, my goal is not to tell the viewer a story they already know, but to exorcise my personal pain and discomfort, in the hopes that others may see themselves in it.
