Redd Walitzki’s Sensual Portraits Of Ethereal Yet Slightly-feral, Fairytale Women

Seattle-based Redd Walitzki is an internationally-exhibiting artist focused on figurative New Contemporary Art. Walitzki finds inspiration in the lush surroundings of her home in the Pacific Northwest, and the ornate Baroque ornamentation of her native Bavaria. The vivid muses in her paintings are influenced by the glamour of high-fashion, while often exploring the darker side of human impact on ecology.
Her earliest memories are of painting at the kitchen table with her Grandfather, pulling flowers and foxes out of the bright splashes of pigment. This initial passion led her to pursue a career as an artist, and Redd completed her B.F.A. from Cornish College of the Arts with a concentration in Painting.
Most of Redd’s pieces are oil and mixed media on laser-cut panel (masonite wood or acrylic panel). The process starts with a watercolor underpainting to begin the composition & texture, which is transferred to the panel on ricepaper & lasercut. Each piece is completed with many layers of oil glazes for depth and detail.
We’ve selected here some of the latest paintings by Redd Walitzki from the series titled ‘Stranger Than Earth’ but you can check out much more of her amazing work on her website. The series ‘Stranger Than Earth’ will be exhibited at the Corey Helford Gallery in Los Angeles from July 15 to August 12, 2017.
