Kenzie Wells
Sneaking Out - Sculptural Painting, Surrealist House, Abstract

2019

$2,025

About

This piece by Kenzie Wells was created for a series titled "Strange Houses." "Strange Houses" is a series of dimensional paintings and objects that consider the physical and psychological significance of a house from a queer perspective. Structural elements such as windows and railings are abstracted with familiar interior objects and patterns. Mirrors, coffee tables, and chairs take on sci-fi appearances as they are combined with colorful, gritty acrylic paint, simultaneously reminiscent of the texture of adobe and the disgusting neon icing atop a birthday cake. These juxtapositions mimic the alien feelings associated with being queer and symbolize the constant discrepancies between the house of the psyche and a physical dwelling. Using structures and materials discovered on nightly urban walks, this work employs nighttime as a mysterious scene where the familiar becomes magnified, absurd, and even funny.
