Kathleen Kucka is a painter born in Hartford, Connecticut. Benjamin Genocchio from the New York Times, describes Kucka's work as resembling microscopic images of human tissue, "a welcome inclusion in a show that is long on ideas and rather short on artistic flair. Ms. Kucka reminds us that serious, concept-based art can also be pleasurable to view." He was referring to the group exposition "I Dream of Genomes" in the Islip Art Museum in 2008.  Kucka herself describes her work as a “collage done with paint” that creates a “dance of movement and patterns.”
