Ted Kincaid (b. Chattanooga, TN) received his BFA from Texas Tech University and his MFA from the University of Kentucky. Over the course of two decades, Kincaid has systematically subverted the association of photographs with truth through works that explore the play between painting and photography. Through various series, Kincaid walks the line between fact and fiction, constructing manufactured images that seem authentic while also creating photographic images that seem too fantastic to be plausible. Kincaid is recognized in particular for his cloud series, and for the use of the tondo format.
Galleries and institutions throughout the United States have shown his work, including a recent solo exhibition at the Georgia Museum of Art, Athens. Kincaid has also exhibited at the International Print Center of New York; the Savannah College of Art and Design; the San Antonio Museum of Art; and the Loyola University Art Gallery, New Orleans. Kincaid’s work is included in the permanent collections of many public and private organizations, including the Dallas Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, the San Antonio Museum of Art, the Neiman Marcus Collection, American Airlines Coorporation, the Belo Corporation, the Microsoft Corporation, Pfizer, Inc, Reader’s Digest Corporate Collection, the City of Seattle, Washington, the U.S. State Department, and the Human Rights Campaign Headquarters, Washington, DC.
