Blythe King’s art reconciles her background in Religious Studies with her interest in the effects of popular culture on female identity. Featuring reworked images of fashion models from American mail-order catalogs from the 1940’s- 80’s, Blythe’s collage and image transfer portraits suggest that through a process of transformation, we may see more clearly the work of culture on women’s bodies. She lives and works in Richmond, VA, and has exhibited her collages throughout Virginia. Born in Pittsburgh, PA, Blythe is deeply influenced by Andy Warhol. Blythe currently works as a youth art educator at The Visual Arts Center of Richmond and is a professor of World Religions at J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College.
