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.
