About the Artist

File 128434

Agnes Walden (b. 1994) is a Brooklyn, New York-based painter concerned with queer & trans subjectivities. Agnes paints in a restricted yet vibrant palette, allowing large swaths of jewel toned paint to shine through layers of dark scumbling and shadowy glazing. Short staccato brushstrokes offer a visual articulation of the act of seeing, each mark evidence of attention and reverence. Her paintings are a record of mutual understanding between the artist and the sitter, a resonant moment of connection and acknowledgement experienced by two trans people. Through her intimate paintings, Agnes explores the limitations and potentialities of representation in portraiture.
