“Perfectly Weird” by Kit King

Attention all artists! In partnership with our friends at Squarespace, Hi-Fructose will be highlighting five artists who are currently using Squarespace for their website or portfolio, to be featured on HiFructose.com. This week we are featuring Ontario based artist Kit King, who in collaboration with her husband, creates large scale hyperrealistic oil paintings that portray her subjects in fragments. Her compositions feature tight crops of their faces, eyes, hands, and tattoos with plays on light and shadow to establish mood.  King labels herself as a recluse, and getting up close and personal with her subjects enables her to form personal connections to them. “I do not merely want to meticulously capture an image, but rather breathe a vital life force into transformed renditions of the world around me,” she says.
