About David Kitz

David Kitz’s work investigates the representational parameters and material qualities of the medium of photography. Hyper aware of the impact that a limited frame creates in relaying the appearance of a subject, Kitz acknowledges the indexical shortcomings of all photographs. Exploiting the way the camera records three-dimensional space on a two-dimensional plane, he explores the ways in which his subjects respond to conflation. His interest in flatness and the idea of the photograph as a veneer has made texture, and the illusion of texture, a major focus of his work.

David Kitz (born 1987, Los Angeles) received his BA in Fine Art from UCLA in 2011. He currently lives and works in Los Angeles, CA.
