Critiques:

« American artist Donna Kuhn delivers riveting portraits imbued with a radicalized vulnerability, at times violent strokes and colours, contrasted with a soft, soulful gaze. » Louise Pharand, Pharand Art, Toronto

« We are absolutely thrilled to be working with Donna Kuhn. Her paintings, collages, altered books and jewelry are really great. They combine the obsessiveness of an outsider with the composition and palette of a trained artist. Very art brut. » Parker Lanier, High Lonesome Gallery, Texas

Statement:

I make art because that is the only way life makes sense to me. A recurrent theme in my work is the face: semi-abstract, colorful and emotional. I don’t choose to draw these faces. Their forms just come to me. They jump off the page and stare at you. Dare to stare back.  I have tried to choose between media. I cannot. I feel fully engaged and alive when I’m creating. I’m a maker of images more than a storyteller. My work is about being a woman and an outsider. It has been described as playful, haunting, bold, whimsical, colorist, sad, poetic, mysterious and tense.
