Inspired by color, luminosity, and pattern, Kitty Dudics is a lifelong painter of figures, fabrics, and coastal landscapes. In the landscapes, she captures the atmosphere of the environment through the ebullient application of paint and rendering of naturally occurring patterns. Similarly, her figurative work reveals the subject’s soul through their pose and facial expression.
Dudics says, “Being surrounded by nature is a spiritual experience for me. I respond to the landscape, from bodies of water to the spacious skies, to varieties of plant life in my environment. I feel emotional reactions to color relationships in nature & enjoy ex-pressing its range & luminosity.”
Dudics moved to Corpus Christi in 1981, where she taught art at Del Mar College for 34 years. Since her retirement, she spends time painting in her studio, which she has named Girasol, Spanish for Sunflower. In 2017, she was chosen by Texas Monthly Magazine as one of their “Top Ten Artists in Texas to Collect.” Her work can be found in the collections of the Art Museum of South Texas, the Corpus Christi Regional Transportation Authority, and the University of Texas at San Antonio. Dudics will open a new exhibit at Anita Diebel’s Studio September 7. The exhibit is a three person show called “ The September Girls,” featuring work by three artists who have all been featured in one-person shows at Rockport Center for the Arts during the month of September in recent years.
