terristories loosely depicts the last year and a half of the artists’ life experiences- primarily focusing on her recent move from The South to her new home here in Wilmington, De. The efforts to conceive and the recent birth of boy/girl twins are also influential concepts in this series of paintings. As the artist adapts to new territories (geographical & figurative), she processes change through creating abstracted, indistinct stories that capture both the essence of landscape & the assimilation to new culture whilst navigating her way through motherhood.

Artist Bio:

T.S. Kist recently relocated from Savannah, Ga to Wilmington, De. and welcomed twin babies on December 31, 2012. Works range from abstracted acrylic paintings on canvas & paper to experimental sculptural works using non-traditional found objects.

Her paintings have been featured in the national publication, New American Paintings; recipients of several awards; and have been collected throughout the country. Kist was awarded an artist residency at the Vermont Studio Center this past Fall as a sculpture artist. After the birth of her babies, she continues to create and paint as she adjusts to her new surroundings.
