Her work addresses the relationship and perceived dichotomy of the biological and mechanical worlds.  The process of forming and reforming her works builds physical and  emotional depth to the images. A combination of silver point, oils, gouache,  acrylic ink and graphite are used to form the images against a white background.

 

“I am compelled to paint about these things because of Miranda, my medically challenged daughter” explains Getty. “Her life highlights a universal experience of temporality and transformation.”

 

Getty moved between scientific and creative fields before receiving her BFA at the Art Institute of Chicago in 2004. She received her MFA from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2007. She teaches at UW Madison, is a docent at the Madison Museum of Contemporary Contemporary Art, and conducts creative workshops at the Madison Public Library.
