About


Colleen Critcher is a visual artist fascinated by commodity culture, kitsch, and plastic things. Her works obsessively explore images of garden gnomes and dinosaur figurines, as she investigates the powerful significance of seemingly menial objects in contemporary culture. The artist often projects herself as character in a bizarre narrative of consumerism. Each painting adds to the absurdity of a deeply complicated consumption culture.

Critcher received her MFA in Painting from Savannah College of Art and Design in 2012. She currently lives in Florence, SC where she maintains a studio. She has taught art foundations courses at Coker University, Coastal Carolina University, and Francis Marion University. She serves as the gallery coordinator for Steven F. Gately Gallery formerly known as University Place Gallery. Her work has been shown at The Southern, Redux Contemporary Art Center, Kai Lin Art, Gutstein Gallery, and 701 Center for Contemporary Art.
