Biography

Kristen Cliburn - Artists - Cris Worley Fine Arts

Kristen Cliburn b. 1974– Kristen Cliburn’s immaculately executed canvases are visual distillations of the natural world. Cliburn views the work as allusions to the physical world through the “subtle isolation of color and light”. Their deceptively minimal appearance quickly gives way to an intense depth of presence, followed by an unanticipated sensory experience. Requiring the act of “slow seeing” Cliburn’s paintings can be positively transformative, calling on the viewer to slow down and enjoy the process of looking.

Kristen Cliburn received her BFA in Painting at the University of Texas, Austin and her MFA in Painting from the University of Houston. Since 1998 her work has been included in over 50 group and solo exhibitions, throughout the US and abroad, most notably in Texas, California, New York, and Queenstown, New Zealand. She has participated in exhibitions juried by Rock Hushka (Curator of Contemporary & Northwest Art – Tacoma Art Museum), Irene Hofmann (Director & Chief Curator – SITE Santa Fe), Dave Hickey (Independent Art Critic), Larissa Harris (Curator – Queens Museum of Art), and Miranda Lash (Curator of Contemporary & Modern Art – New Orleans Museum of Art). Among her achievements, Cliburn was a resident at the Blue Mountain Center for the Arts, NY. Her works can be found in the permanent collection of UT Southwestern Medical Center, and she prominently featured in the canonical publication, Texas Abstract: Modern/Contemporary by Jim Edwards and Michael Paglia.
