Katelyn Ledford is an artist currently living in Providence, Rhode Island and attending the Rhode Island School of Design in the Master of Fine Arts program in Painting. She received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree focusing in oil painting at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Her art has been featured and exhibited along the south and north-east regions in galleries and museums such as the Baton Rouge Gallery, Birmingham Museum of Art, Wiregrass Museum of Art, and Dacia Gallery in New York City. Her work creates a sense of the surreal and bizarre through distortions of the human body and skin. The viewer is left to question their notions of reality and unease in relation to the human form in its bare condition through microscopic, technological, and observable modes of representation.
