A contemporary painter living and working in New Mexico. Her large-scale figurative work explores the unabashed expression of personal identity and personal truths that challenge our time-worn social constructs. Her work highlights the strength and ferocity of female beauty, through a careful and methodical deglamorization of her subjects. Ever-present throughout her work, are the fluorescent hues and shapes which speak to the advertorial, graphic nature of her narratives and represent the pressures faced by modern women. Through their intense chroma and monumental scale, Caimi's work celebrates the power of visual communication as a means to express higher truths and evoke empathy in her viewers.
Caimi completed a BFA (Summa Cum Laude) in Painting from Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle, WA in 2010. Her work has been shown/featured internationally, and in publications such as PoetsArtists (cover x 2), American Art Collector, Hi-Fructose, Art Forum, Combustus, Juxtapoz, and Printer's Devil Review (cover). In 2015, she was awarded the $10,000 William and Dorothy Yeck Award for work that "visually responds to painting in the 21st century" juried by LACMA's Franklin Sirmans. Her works have been acquired by Miami University Permanent Art Collection, The Tullman Collection, The Kelsey Lee-Offield Collection, and The Art of Elysium Charity Auction.
