About

Through mixed media paintings, graphite drawings, and object-oriented installations, Kenneth explores interpersonal relationships and the human condition to consider how one’s actions affect the surrounding human landscape. With a multidisciplinary practice, intense on research and process, layers of image, paint, type, paper, and wood are used to question how we relate to and form systems of belief—social, political and/or religious. His paintings and installations have been critically acclaimed, notably by: WalkerArt.org, NPR, Trend Hunter Art & Design, and Time Out New York. His series titled “Drawing Dance” was featured for twenty-three weeks in The New York Times ArtsBeat and culminated in exhibitions in New York City, Houston, Philadelphia, and at Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival. Kenneth is fiscally sponsored by The Solo Foundation and is Art Editor of H.O.W. Journal. He has won awards from the American Advertising Federation and had work selected for the Bombay Sapphire & Russell Simmons Artisan Series. He performed in the remount of Rashaun Mitchell’s NOX at Danspace Project, has been a panelist for The One Club and guest lectured at Bard College. He received a BFA in Illustration and AAS in Graphic Design from Rochester Institute of Technology, NY.
