I'm a big fan of Dave Kinsey's work and his upcoming show at NYC's Joshua Liner Gallery looks like it's going to be a smashing success. The exhibition will be Kinsey's largest and most extensive body work in nearly three years. Each piece is made up of acrylic, spray paint, paper, wood, and ink on canvas.
"In this new body of work I primarily explore emotional and environmental boundaries, as I perceive them, in the context of the growing discord between humanity and nature," says Kinsey. "The state of the world today concerns me and I want try to affect, if not change, at least a feeling of realization or understanding when people view my work."
"In terms of actual method, I approach each piece initially with an unconscious and somewhat spontaneous action to create what I consider to be 'the perfect abstraction,' made up of energetic colors and strong blacks. From that point I begin to add representational forms, linework and shapes to complete the narrative."
