Like many of her peers, Kilgallen's paintings were inspired by the streets, graffiti, and music. Setting her apart were specific influences: hand-drawn signage, hobo train writing, and Appalachian banjo music. Inspired by rural sensibility rather than urban hipsterism, her use of forgotten letterforms and handcrafted style-bolstered by her depiction of strong female characters-reached back to create a new legacy. Kilgallen's work served as a reminder of where current street culture came from while pushing the boundaries of "street art" at the same time.
This is the catalogue accompanying the show "In The Sweet Bye & Bye" at REDCAT gallery, designed by Michael Worthington and Jon Sueda documenting and contextualizing the hundreds of works the artist produced during her prolific career. The catalogue includes essays by Gallery at REDCAT Director & Curator Eungie Joo and Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art Curator Alex Baker as well as excerpts from an interview with the artist by Susan Sollins, Executive Producer and Curator of Art: 21.
