A painter for over 30 years, Kilduff’s main focus is plein air painting (painting on location in the landscape). Kilduff’s work has been shown at numerous art festivals and galleries across the United States. For over 15 years he has also hosted a “how to paint” cable access show called “Let’s Paint TV”.
Excerpt from essay by Jocko Weyland Chief Curator of Contemporary Art Tucson
“In the Nan Rae Gallery at Woodbury University Kilduff will start off with an opening night performance making portraits of the first one hundred people who arrive, “speed-painting,” to capture the essence of his subjects in an incredibly fast-paced manner that elicits telling and evocative depictions. Taking his sincere love for art and singular form of community outreach, he will then embark on three days of plein air painting on the Woodbury campus. Inside the gallery a monitor will display past episodes of the now legendary Public-access show Let’s Paint TV, and the remnants (treadmills, bicycles, etc) of his forays into a distinctively Kilduffian universe will be presented, along with sculptures that meld painting to beloved arcade and bar standbys in the form of life-size three-dimensional cardboard pinball machines.”
