About the Artist
MK Bailey makes narrative, figure-based paintings and experimental landscapes that reflect her experience of the world. The predominant themes she works with are nostalgia/grief, anxiety, and the tension between dream and reality. Her work explores the line between ironically self-aware kitsch and a genuinely over-the-top-feminine aesthetic, and the light and bright imagery combines with the dark themes of the work to create tension between presentation and meaning. Although the main focus of Bailey’s practice is large-scale acrylic painting, she also uses digital mediums and has a burgeoning installation practice. Bailey is currently based in Washington, D.C. Her first solo show, Secret Garden, was at IA&A Hillyer in April 2022 and was reviewed by The Washington Post. She is a repeat recipient of DC’s Commission on the Arts and Humanities Fellowship and was a finalist in the 2022 Trawick Prize. Bailey was the 2020 Gallery Artist-in-Residence at Capitol Hill Arts Workshop, where she co-founded The Residents Collective.
