Kim Cadmus Owens
Holly Johnson Gallery, Dallas, TX
Kim Cadmus Owens' practice looks to the stretched-out and glitched lines of frozen computer screens. Imposing this imagery onto mid-century American landscapes, Owens draws in her viewer while simultaneously disrupting their visual experience. Contemporary human existence is often mediated through some form of digital media; by juxtaposing classically “American” architectural iconography with references to broken technology, Owens harkens to an unreachable past. Born and raised in Texas, Kim Cadmus Owens now lives and works in Dallas after having lived in New York, Baltimore, and San Francisco. She received her MFA in Painting from Towson University, Baltimore, Maryland, and a BFA in Painting and Drawing from the San Francisco Art Institute, San Francisco, California.
