2014 Delaware Division of the Arts Established Fellow in the Visual Arts-Painting,
T.S. Kist has worked with a variety of influences to help inspire visual content. Social, medical, and popular references have provided narrative and symbolic imagery in much of her previous work. The 2012-2013 current body of work explores the personal, minimizing the narrative while emphasizing the process.
Works range from acrylic and graphite on paper to installations of latex on walls to pieces made from discarded technological parts. Kist holds a Masters in Fine Arts Painting (MFA) from Savannah College of Art & Design. In September 2012, Kist attended an artist residency program at The Vermont Studio Center as a partial grant recipient.
Kist's professional background includes museum education (program developer & manager) and youth art instructor.
