Kitty Dudics studies unposed peoples’ relationships through the visual puzzles of their body language.  These works are a result of her ongoing observations sketched from life from local city  bus stations;   human activities as  they are in transit.  Color, light, pattern , painting surface  ,facial expression , the figure,  and  sense of place are important elements in her art.   Dudics  is  influenced by  the everyday activities of people captured in 19th century Asian prints as well as by contemporary  figurative artists including  Milton Avery,  Eric Fischel,  and Henri Matisse.

The other works in this exhibit emphasize her experimentation with painting surface, and patch like application of the decorative whether derived from nature, the landscape or textiles.
