Kika Karadi is a Chinati artist in residence in March and April.

A painter, Karadi makes large-scale, monochromatic, time-based works in which she applies stencils, masking tape, and oil-based black ink to glass, effaces and rearranges the paint, then transfers it to linen.

Karadi was born in Budapest, Hungary in 1975 and received a BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore. Her work has been exhibited at the 51st Venice Biennale and the 2nd Prague Biennale. Solo exhibitions include: Jonathan Viner Gallery, London, and the Journal Gallery, Brooklyn, NY (both 2014); Process Museum, Ventana Gallery, Oro Valley, AZ (2013); New Paintings, the Bowery Basement Annex, New York, NY (2012); Dark Matter, AMFA Gallery, New York, NY (2011); and Observing Naked Singularities, Vibrational Optics and the Paradigm of a Quantum Life, Galleria Rubin, Milan, Italy (2009). She lives and works in New York, NY and Minnesota.
