Kari Cholnoky July 2012


Kari Cholnoky is a Brooklyn, New York based painter who is currently doing a Masters in Fine Arts in Painting at Cranbrook Academy of Art. Produced in a stream-of-consciousness, Cholnoky’s paintings reflect the psychologies of contemporary youth. By tapping in to automatic mental associations, she seeks to avoid rationalization of her surroundings. Her paintings, which range widely in size, pervade both personal physical space and mental space to challenge viewers to re-examine their relationships to identity, anxiety, and consumption of visual information.
