We posted earlier about Dave Kinsey’s show at BLK/MKT Gallery. For anyone who missed the opening, Kinsey and BLK/MKT Gallery delivered an amazing show. Politically inspired, Kinsey’s work explores the frustration of apathy and the burnden of defeat. “Apathy seems increasingly common in modern western culture,” Kinsey observes, “There is a general sense that people feel helpless or don’t care to engage in issues that affect their lives and the lives of those around them. Consumerism and even modern technology allows for and easy complacency.”


In a way his artwork, like the political landscape, can be perceived on multiple levels. On one level, we see the palatable beauty of his work. At a deeper level, we the see conflict and despair of his subject. His paintings take on a painterly style which encourage closer observation of the layered imagery. Static restrained imagery is juxtaposed against aggressive splashes of paint. The paintings are most powerful when in seen person and are well worth a visit to the gallery. The show runs through November 17, 2007. For more information visit BLK/MKT Gallery. Click the link below to see more images from the opening show.
