Caitlyn D’Amico is an abstract painter living in Portland, Maine where she is attending Maine College of Art as a second-year MFA student. She received her BFA in Painting with a minor in Fashion Design at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY. While attending Pratt Institute she exhibited in a group show titled R.E.M. and at Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute (Utica, NY). Through painting directly on walls and repeating those shapes in wood, foam, or fabric, her work explores the effects of a particular arrangement of objects in space. She enjoys bursts of bright color, twisting tubes and wires, and shiny fabrics. In preparation for her thesis exhibition (May of 2021), she is exploring how paintings exist in multi-dimensional pictorial planes that allow viewers to enter into a different physical and mental space.
