Redd Walitzki is an internationally-exhibiting artist focused on figurative New Contemporary Art. Recent solo exhibitions include Modern Eden Gallery in San Francisco, Roq La Rue in Seattle, and Corey Helford Gallery in Los Angeles. Her work has been showcased in many galleries including Last Rites in NYC, and beinArt in Melbourne Australia. She has also been featured on a variety of media outlets including HiFructose, Juxtapoz and Miroir Magazine.
Walitzki finds inspiration in the lush surroundings of her
home in the Pacific Northwest, and the ornate Baroque ornamentation of
her native Bavaria. The vivid muses in her paintings are influenced by
the glamour of high-fashion, while often exploring the darker side of
human impact on ecology. Her earliest memories are of painting at the
kitchen table with her Grandfather, pulling flowers and foxes out of the
bright splashes of pigment. This initial passion led her to pursue a
career as an artist, and Redd completed her B.F.A. from Cornish College
of the Arts with a concentration in Painting.
Most of Redd's pieces are oil and mixed media on laser-cut panel (masonite wood or acrylic panel) The process starts with a watercolor underpainting to begin the composition & texture, which is transferred to the panel on ricepaper & lasercut. Each piece is completed with many layers of oil glazes for depth and detail. Redd can be found in her studio painting to BBC Documentaries, playing with her pet opossum, or chasing down the next strange adventure on her scooter.
