About

This contemporary figurative portrait by American artist Carylon Killebrew depicts a striking woman in blue looking directly at the viewer. The palette is made up of a dark background with cream, pink, blue, green and neutrals in the palette. The artist uses her brush strokes to convey color and depth in this piece. Carylon Killebrew was born in Detroit, Michigan in 1948. She moved with her family to Tennessee at an early age and received her first art instruction at Middle Tennessee State University. After attending college, Killebrew took an extended absence from creating art to raise a family and then to focus on bringing physical fitness to residents of Tennessee (for which she received the Governor’s award for physical fitness). Thereafter, Carylon resumed her visual art career initially as a printmaker, employing a theme of repeated patterns, yet producing surprising variations of images through subtractive and “light field” applications of ink. Often she would accentuate the print by applying paint with oil sticks. Because of the size limitation of the press bed, Killebrew transitioned to canvas and board, producing larger and bolder images. Characterized by many as a colorist, she has expanded her subject matter to include interior landscapes and situational figurative studies. Carylon’s desire is to make art that is pure, simply honest, fulfilling and unadorned- art that is an extension of her faith in a creative God. We are drawn to the exuberance of her subjects and the light, warmth and energy that emanates from each one.
