Kay May is an NYC based artist.
May’s practice spans diverse media, including painting, sculpture, drawing, and fabric arts. Centering an interest in portraiture, May examines how the art-making process can be an integral part of healing from grief/loss. Meticulously rendered stippling portraits serve as the base for the artist’s drawing practice where formerly living beings are meditated upon during the art-making process. May's works move fluidly between genres spanning portraits of extinct plants and deceased subjects to vibrant afro-futurist rugs and sculptures.
Even though she is an introvert, she loves communication, so feel free to reach out via email or instagram.
