Artist Statement & Biography
Kevin is a local artist working out of his studio in Salem, MA. Kevin earned his bachelor’s degree in fine art from Towson University in 2010. Kevin exhibits his work across the North Shore in local galleries as well as other private collections. His oil paintings offer a unique perspective of the modern landscape in which he balances abstraction and realism.
"I consider my paintings as visual diaries which are influenced by places that I’ve lived or traveled to. As far as my paintings being void of people, my intent is to capture a particular moment that I find interesting and although people inhabit these spaces, they are not necessarily my focus. People are rarely static, especially in urban environments, so to paint them that way would take away from the energy I try to evoke in my work. My overall intent when creating a work of art is to capture a personal experience and put it onto a canvas with hopes that I capture everything that I felt on that particular day."
