Kristin Gaudio Endsley

Works in Brooklyn, NY and Washington D.C.
Raised near the rolling shores of Chesapeake Bay, Kristin’s perspective was strongly shaped by the visual clash of industry and nature in and around the bustling American port town of Baltimore. Descended from a long line of artists and craftsmen, Kristin has a family history in highly tactile expressions of creativity. Her grandfather was a furniture maker; her mother is a painter. Family influences in materials and craftsmanship helped fuel Kristin’s interest in textiles—both natural and synthetic textures and patterns. As a result of this interest, in addition to her fine arts work, Kristin obtained her Bachelor of Science in Fashion Design and Illustration at Virginia Tech University. Kristin has traveled and studied extensively in Europe, Africa, and the United States where she honed her eye and trademark ability to create visual texture with a rich, adventurous color palette and expressive techniques.
Kristin Gaudio Endsley’s creative practice encompasses the different disciplines she has learned and polished throughout her life. From ceramics to painting, she has cultivated an ability to create tension between the defined and undefined forms that characterize her work, and the expressive rhythms she skillfully portrays through measured intuition. In her new series, Kristin is breaking away from the controlled nature of geometric shapes. She opens up to a critical dynamic of canvas, paint, and water; using spontaneous yet methodical dripping and pooling techniques to compose soft-edge and mutable images with a foundation in both her personal and the collective consciousness. The drips break the tension on the canvas and leave their mark. Like an articulation of her thoughts, memories unfold onto the canvas, soaked. The canvas themselves, primed and unprimed, function as symbolic analogies of our human vulnerability and readiness to be touched, as well as our durability and resilience we learn with time.
