Breaking from the historical canon of abstract painting, Kincaide emphasizes the hidden, internal landscape of her figures. Through control and spontaneous disruption, she conveys texture, design, and abstraction through her painted flora. Her lines and brushstrokes veer and pivot quickly, yet naturally, all while maintaining tension throughout the composition.
Exploring an increasingly bold palette, Kincaide's latest works introduce touches of highly saturated colors, peeking out from behind her flowers and outlining the facial silhouettes of her subjects. A strong advocate of structurally applied color, her work explores anonymity and transformation. Incorporating elements of fashion photography and contemporary socio-cultural emblems of status and identity, her figures define the separation between body and mind. Headless and bursting forth with florals, Kincaide’s figures showcase the idea of ambiguity between our bodies, identities, and thoughts.
