Kay Hartung earned her BFA from Philadelphia College of Art, and her MFA from Syracuse University. She is an accomplished artist with many awards and commissions for her work, including pastels and encaustic painting. She also enjoys making whimsical rubber band jewelry. You won't believe it's made of rubber bands until you touch it!
My current body of work is related to my fascination with the microscopic world. I have been looking at electron microscope photographs and am inspired by the abstract organic shapes and intense color of this hidden world. I imagine the energy and interactions that go on in the body and the mind to produce action and thought. I am exploring the connections between science and art ; conscious of the profound effects that these minute biological forms have on the universe.
At noa, you can find Kay's mini encaustic paintings as well as rubber band necklaces, bracelets, and earrings.
