About Caitin


Caitlin Hurd attended the Ringling School of Art and Design and later received a BFA from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design and a MFA from the New York Academy of Art.

Caitlin explains her work by saying, “I am a figurative painter working on a series about the suspended-in-time moments when the mind is somewhere else. After surviving being run over by a car, these moments are more prominent in my mind. These paintings attempt to make sense of the accident and these subtle and mysterious works convey the dark beauty that we all notice from time to time. My work is focused on the line dividing what is experienced and what cannot be expressed in words. In this series, I often relate my post-accident self to a 4-year-old autistic boy. This boy struggles with speaking and sometimes appears to be trapped inside himself. In one painting, I use a tree to represent both the boy’s struggle to express himself and the car that trapped me to the ground. Simultaneously, the tree represents an organic connection to the world that offers hope of growth and renewal.”
