About Edith Konrad

Blurring the distinction between figure and ground, Edith Konrad’s spectral forms—human in shape—inhabit dark and muted abstract environments punctuated by vivid bursts of color. In combinations of acrylic on canvas, mixed media, and collage, she studies line, color, texture, and the qualities of acrylic itself. In some works traditional mark-marking and Color Field painting techniques are evident, while in others Konrad references the visceral immediacy of cave painting and painting on stone. Her scenes are frequently so osbcured by the successive layers of paint that they approach the condition of pure color, light, and shade.
