Kemper at the Crossroads
From the Kemper's website: "Keltie Ferris is a postdigital painter...Her quick, gestural marks, hard-edged forms, and diaphanous passages of sprayed oil paint demonstrate rigorous investigations of spatial illusion, color, and surface texture...And, with titles such as "Jobriath" (the first openly gay pop star) and "Lady Stardust" (David Bowie's 1972 hit), our minds are punctuated with a broad range of associations from identity politics to pop-culture icons."
