Kate Pincus-Whitney (b. 1993, Santa Monica, CA) is a Los Angeles-based painter investigating how cultural objects and engagement shape the psychological self—most specifically, through the theater of the dinner table and the interplay of its relational complexities. Her dense, energetic still lifes overflow with cultural ephemera, treats, and characters in a bold, unapologetic color palette splashed with painterly details and flourishes. Pincus-Whitney received her MFA in Painting from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2020 and her BA from Sarah Lawrence College in 2016. The artist’s work has been featured in a number of publications including Art in America and Artnews among others. and she is part of the 2022 Forbes 30 Under 30 List for Art and Design. Recent exhibitions include The Gods are in the Kitchen at Fredericks & Freiser (New York, NY); Now What? at PM/AM (London, UK); and Paradise a la Carte at GNYP (Berlin, DE), among others.
