Coker University presents “Out of Order,” a solo exhibition of 15 paintings by Professor Kristen Letts Kovak. The exhibition will be on view August 21 through September 12 with an artist talk on September 7.
“Out of Order” is a visual reflection on living with chronic illness, where even the present is wrapped in uncertainty. Each artwork begins as an unsettled conjecture, a proposition to react to and depart from. Kovak’s initial plans are only speculative place-holders for a future reality. She deliberately resists clarity and shifts images into a state of disarrangement, that while abstract, maintains a threadbare link to representation. The finished pieces are the accumulation of renegotiated pathways.
