Price Upon Request

About

"Tangential," 2020 by artist James Kennedy, is a large abstract acrylic and mixed media painting on a masonite panel floating in a white shadowbox signed on verso. James layers acrylic washes on masonite panels to which he adds emulsion, glazes and scraping to build up individual planes of color. A sophisticated palette of white, cream, taupe, gray, greige, ochre, amber, wheat with dramatic touches of black is used by the artist with no evidence of brushstrokes. In James's own words his paintings "address a fascination with essential structures and arrangements whilst exploring the linguistics of music, mathematics, dance and architecture. Pattern recognition and manipulation are common themes, and involve the resolution of space within my own abstract vocabulary, in essence solving spatial equations through paint." The results are meticulously crafted architectural landscapes of tertiary colors exquisitely ordered and balanced while simultaneously possessing rhythmic and lyrical surfaces. James Kennedy, was born in Northern Ireland and studied at the Royal Scottish Academy and Rhodec Academy of Design in London where he respectively received BA degrees in Arts and Interior and Architectural Design. He is the recipient of prestigious awards including the Golden Foundation for the Arts Residency, James Bridie Gold Medal awarded by RSA, Brooklyn Artist Gym for best in show Abstract Landscape and the Kiton Art Rising winner in 2010. Selected exhibitions include Dolby Chadwick, San Francisco, Callan Contemporary, New Orleans, John Hartell Gallery, Cornell University, Mindy Solomon, Miami, MMFA, Palm Springs, Ann Loucks Gallery, Chicago, Brooklyn Artists Gym, NY, Surface Library Gallery, East Hampton, Galerie Werner, Pittsburgh, Amy Zook at The Gallery at 200 Lexington Avenue, NY, Arlev Art, Paris and the Royal Dublin Society, The artist's work resides in the corporate and private collections of the British Museum, Corcoran Group, Saatchi +Saatchi, Kneedler-Fauchere, Barbra Barry, Citi Habitats, Sisti Collection, Vivaldi Partners, Dermacare, Mahinder Tak and Edward Albee, just to name a few. His work has also been featured in "Elle Decor", `"New York Spaces" and in the television hit series, "Royal Pains.".
