Kaitlyn Tucek lives and works in Denver, CO. From Long Island, NY, Tucek graduated from Pratt Institute in 2007 and was awarded her Master’s from CUNY Queens College in 2013.
Mother to two, Tucek is a multi-disciplinary artist who is often labeled a feminist. After years of figurative and representational work, based in observational drawing, Tucek has simplified her focus to the line itself as a representation of the endlessness of organic form. Her work is in constant search of a pleasurable tension between flat fields of color and loose, organic marks and forms. Mark-making functions as a continuum, each line a part of a greater whole, continuous and evolving.
Tucek has been featured in Hyperallergic, Westword, Modern in Denver, and was recently named one of Denver’s top 5 artists to watch and collect by 5280 Magazine. In addition to her art, Tucek occasionally moonlights in art and museum education, illustration and curatorial work.
