Blythe King

Blythe King utilizes a variety of processes including image transfer, photo collage, Zen calligraphy, and gold leafing to reveal the complexities of female identity. Born in Pittsburgh, her work is heavily influenced by two legacies — the whimsical, social commentary of hometown hero Andy Warhol forged with traditional Steel Town resolve. King studied religion and art and received her BA from the University of Richmond and her MA from the University of Colorado. She practiced Zen calligraphy with Stephen Addiss (The Art of Zen). Her latest fine art project, Two Sides of the Same Coin, is exceptional for its delicate but moving revelations. She rescues clippings from a range of vintage catalogs to open a fresh discourse around women's issues. Her art has been exhibited in museums, galleries, and art centers nationwide. King currently works as an artist, art educator, and professor of religious studies in Richmond, VA.
