Kathy Sirico is a Brooklyn-based visual artist and poet working at the intersection of textiles, sculpture, painting, collage, and installation.
Through a maximalist approach and experimental collage-based practices, Sirico unites materials, strategies, and histories of fine arts, craft, and architecture to create large-scale wall-based sculptural installations and freestanding objects with new, found, and recycled materials. Sirico aims to innovate the field of contemporary abstraction by reimagining visual language as empathetic, feminist, and ecologically conscious.
