Oil on Canvas by Kaffee Kang
About Kaffee Kang
"Red hair and green eyes, Gen-X or Baby Boomer, cool or nerdy - these are all identifiers that describe who we are and sometimes our place in a larger group. Some are more useful and accurate than others. Some we are born with and others are assigned to us. Some we are proud of and others we are eager to shed. Much of my work explores issues related to identity, utilizing visual narrative. Through color and imagery, my paintings give voice to recurrent themes of alienation and belonging, such as gender roles, minority status, the immigrant mentality, the political divide, aging, and body image." ?Essentially self taught and relatively new to painting, Kaffee brings a fresh eye and a unique style that defies classification. She mostly paints from observation, with a significant contribution from the imagination. Spanning a wide range of subject matter, her work is colorful and quirky. Her paintings are held in private collections and have been exhibited at the various venues in Massachusetts and Maryland.
