Working in painting and installation, KC Tidemand’s use of vibrant and clear colours as well as arresting textures captures both the eye and the imagination of their audience. Through the use of small pieces of wood affixed to walls and ceilings, Tidemand’s installations create miniature metropolises alongside technicolor paintings of reclining skeletons and blueprint-like works.
Born in 1988 in Norway, Tidemand now lives and works in New York City. In 2011 Tidemand graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy and Studio Art from Skidmore College, and in 2015 they secured their Master of Fine Arts from New York City’s School of Visual Arts.
KC Tidemand enjoyed solo exhibitions in Oslo, Norway and Brooklyn, New York as well as group exhibitions in cities including Oakland, Reno, Miami, Asker, Brooklyn, Oslo, and San Diego.
