Kiki Gaffney is an artist currently based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Gaffney received her Bachelor’s of Arts from Loyola College in Baltimore and her Master’s of Fine Arts from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. She largely works with oils and acrylic but often incorporates detailed graphite in her pieces. She is continually inspired by the visual patterns of her everyday surroundings – whether organically formed in nature or manufactured by human activity. Her work depicts the hidden systems of growth and decay along with the spontaneity of movement within wind, light and shadow. Gaffney’s practice is an active, meditative process which highlights the beauty of configuration and contemplation.
