Kaitlyn Tucek: It’s All Coming Apart
Denver-based gallery and community creative space, ATC DEN, will be hosting an exhibition with Denver-based artist, Kaitlyn Tucek, It’s All Coming Apart, of which kicks off on February 1st, 2018 and will run through March 31st, 2018.
A Long Island-native, Kaitlyn Tucek discovered her love of art early on, attending the Long Island Drawing School. After, Tucek enrolled at the Pratt Institute for Illustration. During her time in New York, she helped curate shows at the Society of Illustrators and the Godwin-Ternbach Museum; as well as show her own work throughout NYC, Brooklyn and Long Island. Tucek also worked at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the MoMA while pursuing her master’s degree from Queens College and exhibited in a group show for the Create Ability Program. Upon graduating, Tucek’s work moved away from illustrative, figurative work to embrace the abstract. Now based in Denver, Tucek is continually exploring Colorado’s vast landscape with her two children and is in love and
inspired by her new environment.
The exhibition tells the personal story (and struggle) of Tucek’s life, a story about gradually losing (and later gaining back) control. Her story is one about strength and resilience, all the while continuing to carry a tremendous amount of weight as both a mother and a woman.
The partnership between Tucek and ATC DEN was inevitable. “Kaitlyn’s work is an important example of an artist using their medium as a space to lean into their own vulnerability, their own fears, and to use their creative process as a vehicle for personal healing, as well as create a discourse on motherhood,” says ATC DEN founder, Laura Krudener, “This exhibition, It’s All Coming Apart, is a poetic journey through a very real and difficult time in Kaitlyn and her family’s life, one in which she found strength through the repetition of her pen on paper, when the world around her, and within her, seemed to be unraveling.”
The event will run from February 1 through March 31, 2018, at the ATC DEN. For more information visit, ATCDen.com.
