Hooks-Epstein Galleries presents Robert Kinsell: Blazes in the Desert opening reception
Just as stick figures, glyphs, paintings, and photography are images that guide people through cultures and civilizations of all periods, Robert Kinsell views his work in a parallel context - as “blazes” of a particular path through time and space.
In his exhibition, Blazes in the Desert, Kinsell chooses to work in a strongly illusionistic manner for two particular reasons. He feels that his work should be accessible, on some level, with anyone who may care to engage with it. Additionally, on a more personal level, Kinsell appreciates the duplicity of convincing the viewer that what they are looking at - colored smears on fabric - is actually a wall or a landscape or a three-dimensional object.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through October 15.
