Dave Kinsey @ Joshua Liner Gallery
We have been waiting nearly two years for it, and it is finally here! Kinsey is exhibiting in NYC at Joshua Liner Gallery from September 9 – October 9, 2010, in a show titled New Works. I so wish I could go, unfortunately I can only vicariously experience this one. However if you are in the NYC area I strongly encourage you to visit this exhibit, as Kinsey is by far one of the most VISIONARY artists I have ever encountered.
In addition to commissioning Kinsey to paint the cover image for my book, Inferno, a large painting that hangs right beside my bed and I probably spend at least thirty minutes a day looking at, I have been collecting Kinsey signed prints for a while now. I have a nice collection of about 10 prints, and I am addicted to his raw, Street-meets-Futurism style. I hope to have a large writing studio to display all his works in someday. Personally he embodies everything I love about art: darkness, dynamism, social commentary, emotional rapture… he has it all!
His press release explains it best: “Kinsey’s works of raw emotion draw their energy, style, and often substance from abstract expressionism mixed with urban hieroglyphics. His dynamic figures are situated within multi-layered, multi-textured atmospheres of pure abstraction. These beings- displaying a mixture of defiance, triumph, and tragedy—transmit their forceful spirit through Kinsey’s range of mediums, signature style, and a high-contrast color palette.”
Here is a link to a few images of the work he is exhibiting this month, enjoy!
