About Kate Pincus-Whitney
Born and raised in Southern California, Kate Pincus-Whitney celebrates portraiture and the theater of the dinner table within her narrative paintings and installation works. She is a recent graduate of Sarah Lawrence College (class of 2016), where she focused on visual and performance art.
Kate creatively interprets the world around her through her experience of navigating the world with dyslexia and stereo-blindness. Female forms, table scenes, food, patterns, color, and abstracted and misspelled words—these are all recurring motifs woven into Kate’s colorful canvases, woodcuts, and hybrid installations. Her work synthesizes social and political themes of identity with visual memory and personal histories. Kate acts as an “artist anthropologist,” following and celebrating the thread of women in her family history, depicting female strength, resilience, and creativity.
In 2015, Kate received the Ellen Battell Stoeckel Fellowship to attend Yale’s annual summer art program in Norfolk, Connecticut. In 2016, Kate won second place in the Kennedy Center Emerging Artist Competition. She is currently working as an artist, and divides her time between New York and California.
