Constructions and Compositions: The Work of James Kennedy

“The artist constructs a new symbol with his brush. This symbol is not a recognizable form of anything which is already finished, already made, already existing in the world—it is a symbol of a new world, which is being built upon and which exists by way of people.”
-Eli Lissitzky

New York artist James Kennedy brings his beautifully rendered constructivist works to the Mindy Solomon Gallery from September 15th – November 3rd, 2012, with an Opening Reception from 6-8pm and Artist Talk at 6:30pm Saturday, September 15th. Kennedy’s paintings to date have consisted of complex spatial arrangements that are both painted and built through a process of hard-edge technique coupled with varying dilutions of media. The result is a unified visceral surface that is so knitted in structure it is frequently perceived to be collage.
