Brooklyn-based painter Keltie Ferris creates marks—smeared, sprayed and hand-painted—that solidify or dissolve into abstractions with a sense of perceptual depth that allows for multi-dimensional readings. Her paintings are inspired by subjects that range from the broken up pixilation of digital images to rubbed out graffiti on New York streets to the glimmering city lights that are visible from her Brooklyn studio at night. Ferris was a part of the group exhibition "Besides, With, Against, and Yet: Abstraction and the Ready-Made Gesture" at The Kitchen in 2009.
