For abstract artist Kiki Slaughter, her method is often her muse. Her paintings are best described as an experiment with the fundamental process of painting. She pours, scrapes, layers and otherwise manipulates paint on the canvas to create works that are rich in both color and texture. She is inspired to paint by the very act of painting.
Kiki is also very inspired by her visual surroundings. Thus, her work often evokes the places she has lived and visited. She strives to interpret and record her impressions of the world around her through her use of color and texture. Although her works are entirely abstract, each piece maintains subtle characteristics from its source of inspiration.
Kiki is from Charlottesville, VA and currently lives and works in Atlanta, GA.
