Absence fills Kaitlin Pomerantz’s paintings, implying tales, lives and loves removed, relocated or forgotten. What remains is an arena of opaque nostalgia that also reveals a witty parallel narrative of Painting’s resilience. With earnest irony, Pomerantz’s act of painting a vacated picture asserts Painting’s continued, albeit problematized, mysterious power: absence becomes a presence.
Kaitlin Pomerantz is a Philadelphia-based artist with roots in the East Village, where she was born and raised. Featured paintings and prints were made in the artist’s studio and at San Francisco’s Crown Point Press.
