Kika Karadi
Born 1975, lives and works in New York and Minnesota.

Building compositions with masking tape, cardboard and crude cut out shapes and removing paint with razor blades to create negative space, Karadi's large, monochrome, one shot process "action abstractions" implement a wide array of painterly techniques. These simple stark abstractions remain aloof to the self conscious act of painting, the distanced results of an almost mechanical action.
