Kristin Kunc

Artist Statement

Kunc’s work explores the depths of the feminine perspective with a nostalgic elegance that recalls the past and languorously contemplates the future. Through luxurious garments, calm domesticity, and beautiful objects—including the figure—she delves into the idea of the feminine and all its complicated connotations.

Painted in a traditional manner know as contemporary realism, the works are foremost lush indicators of unadulterated femaleness—showcasing silks, satin, and lace as well as soft, beseeching colors and cool light. But these tactile and sensorial revels lead to examinations of how women situate themselves psychologically in present contemporary culture.


Kristin graduated from the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in 2001 and currently calls the East Coast home. Her work has been shown in numerous shows and featured in many online publications including, Women Painting Women, Artists Daily, Fine Art Connoisseur, and Craftsy. In addition to painting she teaches privately at the Historic Bowne House in Atlantic Highlands, NJ.
