At the end of last month, the Library Street Collective hosted the opening of Dave Kinsey’s (featured) new show entitled Cushion of Memory. Moving somewhat away from the distorted human faces and forms as well as his signature palette anchored in reds, the artist based in the mountains north of Los Angeles has created a triumphant new body of works. Pulling textures, tones, and patterns from the surrounding environment (trees, plants, rocks, the sky), and utilizing a cooler colors, the new pieces feature abstract fragments of Kinsey’s memories that form centerpieces, some […]

Thomas Canto’s works “transpose his personal vision of his environment on canvas.” Stripping it of any human presence, his lines and dynamic imagery represent unreal architectures of futuristic cities. Giving a lot of attention to the finest detail, and being fond of precision work and pure aesthetics, his work greatly depends on his peculiar technique. With his current solo show at Atelier des Bains in Geneva, the artist is pushing this idea forward, exploring the possibilities of adding another dimension to his work. For the Transparent Landscapes, […]

Despite a huge amount of work and projects that has already sealed […]
