> DESCRIPTION

Angela Dufresne's work has been referred to as a kind of painterly Parkour, energetically improvised action in which she acts as a conductor between two reference points: found images (mostly cinematic or architectural) and friends to unleash her own expansive responses that are by turns irreverent, politically biting, self-mockingly melodramatic, and hilarious. In past works, Dufresne employed hypothetical guidelines in the creation of her "bastard portraits" -- portraits that, indicated by their titles, were meant to illustrate what the progeny of such unlikely pairings as Julia Child and Kris Kristofferson might look like. Angela Dufresne was born in Hartford, CT. She currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
