Working primarily in a technique that combines acrylic painting with mixed media sculpture on canvas, New York City artist, Kaitlin Paige Longoria has used these mediums to explore the raw layers of emotional expression.
After the completion of her first collection, Waking Up to Burnt Sienna and her award winning mixed media collage series Wild. 30 Days of Collage, Longoria has began construction on her newest body of work, known as her Core Series. Using dirt, discarded plants, and other found objects, she sculpts these materials with acrylic paint to texturize and embody the inner life of her subjects. Navigating the fragility and durability of these found materials, her new series aims to illuminate the cycles of life, death, and the emotional chaos within one’s core.
