Cornell Museum of Art | 51 N. Swinton Avenue, Delray Beach, FL
Born outside of Philadelphia, Kristin Pavlick has been a life-long artist, using visual culture to question the impact on our decision-making process. Pavlick sees our visual culture as an intentional veil that separates us from the truth— encouraging us to act upon a deeply reinforced value system imposed by society. Kristin challenges you to look through the playful imagery to question just how much of our immediate needs act against our collective needs.
Pavlick earned a B.S. in Art Education from Penn State University in 2005. Before re-locating to South Florida in 2008, she worked as an art educator in several Pennsylvania schools, as well as the managing art sales consultant for a major cruise line. An impromptu trip to the Salvador Dali museum in early 2010 inspired her to change her life and dedicate her career to painting full-time.
Pavlick has since done for work for Don King Productions, Italian VogueEditor Rushka Bergman, and her pieces can be found in the permanent collection of the Coral Springs Museum of Art, public art for the City of Delray Beach and the City of Boca Raton, the corporate collections for Double Tree Hilton (Bloomfield, MI), Tree Top, Inc. (Selah, WA), 26 Degrees (Pompano Beach, FL) Tilted Kilt Pub and Eatery (Boca Raton, FL), P.I.T. Fitness (Boca Raton, FL) as well as being featured by the Cornell Museum of Art (Delray Beach, FL), JF Gallery (West Palm Beach, FL), Electrica Gallery (Miami, FL), Cultural Council (Lake Worth, FL), Gallery 104 (New York, NY), and in South Florida’s vibrant culture—where her work stand tall in several local venues and private collections, including Art Critic Bruce Helander.
