Kathy Sirico is a Brooklyn-based visual artist 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 aesthetic power as empathetic, feminist, and ecologically conscious.
Sirico (b. 1990, Philadelphia) holds an MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute and a Bachelor of Science from Skidmore College. She was a 2020 Artist-in-Residence at Mass MoCA, a 2018 Artist-in-Residence at the Vermont Studio Center, a 2017 Artist-In-Residence at the Lucid Art Foundation, and a 2016 Artist-In-Residence at Recology. Her work has been exhibited throughout the United States and internationally.
