Felice Koenig graduated from the University of Texas at San Antonio with an MFA in 2003, where she studied under Francis Colpitt. Koenig’s work is a loving meditation on obsessive gesture. Many of her pieces are made from more than a fifty layers of paint. The persistent marking of swaths of tiny dots produce seductive, tactile surfaces that despite their artificial nature achieve a sense of organic growth. Her work has been shown widely in the USA and internationally in Germany, China, and Canada. In October, Koenig’s work was highlighted at Renann Issacs Contemporary Art at Art Toronto. This February, it is included in the exhibition Materials Girls, an exploration of material process and notions of excess as they relate to the feminized body, gendered space, and capitalist desire, at the Dunlop Art Gallery in Regina, Saskatchewan. Three of her works are in the collection of the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo, NY. She teaches painting and drawing at Daemen College.
