About Ky Anderson
Ky Anderson’s geometric, abstract paintings are in fact referential of quotidian subjects. Anderson firmly believes that her “imagery is descriptive of the world around us,” particularly in that it conveys a sense of distance. Her compositions frequently feature flat forms, limited palettes, and abstract lines that allude to the horizon. Anderson usually works on a group of paintings incrementally at the same time, which is why suites of paintings often have similar colors. Other times, she begins a work and sets it aside, returning to and reworking it slowly over the course of years. Anderson does not think of a narrative before starting a work, but instead lets them appear as they are completed.
