About

Katrine Burkitt is a Boston-based painter, film/videomaker and multimedia artist. Katrine studied under the Provincetown painter Jim Peters for nearly 10 years, later earning her B.F.A. from Massart in December 2009. For the past decade, Katrine has been exploring portraiture almost exclusively, painting over 50 oil portraits from life of her friends and family, as well as experimenting with "video portraits" and other forms of personal documentary. In 2009 she spent a semester abroad studying Sculpture and Spacial Practices at the Victorian College of the Arts in Melbourne, Australia, also taking the opportunity to travel to Indonesia and Tasmania. These experiences continue to serve as a source of joy and inspiration for her current body of work.

Recent exhibitions and screenings include: Short & Sweet/>, The Wildlife Preserve Outdoor Screening Series, Cambridge, MA, Hey I Know That Guy, Washington Street Art Center, Somerville, MA, Emerging Artists in Massachusetts (Mass. State Transportation Building, Boston), Brick and Mortar Film Festival (Greenfield, MA), MassArt Film Society (Boston, MA), In the Realm of the Senses (Victorian College of the Arts, Melbourne, Australia), Video Lounge (Gallery 51, North Adams, MA), and People That I Love (Godine Gallery, Massachusetts College of Art, Boston). 

Katrine occasionally does portrait work on commission. However, she prefers to work alla prima, painting her subject in a single sitting, from life, if possible.
