Kaileigh Osarczuk was born in 1990 in New York where she continues to reside. Kaileigh Osarczuk says that her work “takes a new spin on the approach of a landscape painting,” and to some viewers her bold acrylic on canvas works might not look like landscapes at all.
Referring to several of her paintings as “Innerplaces,” Kaileigh’s stated goal is to let her pictures “become the subconscious places I enter while working.” While the details of a tree branch or a sky may be apparent, her work often turns the elements of the outside world into an abstract swirl of color patterns. But those paintings also have a strong sense of movement and three-dimensional space. Their vibrantly physical presence has its roots in her skill at juxtaposing light and darkness, as well as her ability to work through all of the tonalities that a particular color palette has to offer.
Having recently graduated from the State University of New York at New Paltz with a degree in Art Education and a concentration in painting, Kaileigh Osarczuk brings a vivid freshness to her work that gives its impressionistic subject material a real sense of power. She has her Masters Degree in Contemporary Art from Sotheby's Institute of Art. She has had two solo exhibitions and has participated in three group exhibitions in the USA.
Innerplaces are environments I find myself in when I paint. As I paint this place, the environment creates itself before me encompassing my emotional state at the time and the principles of color and design. This series represents those places.
