ONE-PERSON SHOW SET FOR 2015;CHANDLER SHOW CONTINUES
A new one-person show has been set for 2015. “It’s an honor to be asked to show my work in this way,” says Kevin.
The show is slated for Tuesday, March 10 through Friday, April 24, 2015, at Central Arizona College’s Visual Arts Gallery in Coolidge, Arizona. Stay tuned for more news about this show as it develops.
Meanwhile, the show “Unpredictable Change” at Vision Gallery in Chandler, Arizona, runs through Saturday, July 5. Kevin’s sculptures in the show exhibit the sometimes surprising breadth of his work.Tesseraction, Nucleus, CounterSprung, Charged Particle, Conjunction, Keep Your Words Short and Sweet (in Case You Have to Eat Them) (right) and Knot Me are all on display. “It’s almost a retrospective,” observes Kevin. “Sculptures from my Ball and Post series, my Gordian Accordion series, my Flowing Grid series and my Never-Ending series are all included.”
The show also features the work of Jose Benavides and Doug Brannan.
Vision Gallery, at 10 E. Chicago St., is owned and operated by the city of Chandler. Learn more about the gallery on its own site.
TWO COMMISSIONS HEAD TO NEW ABODES, ANOTHER BEGINS
The Giant Street Urchin headed for Jupiter, Florida, last week to take its place in its new home at the $131 million commercial complex Harbourside Place. Kevin sent a plaque to share its name with visitors as well as installation instructions. “We also uploaded an installation video to YouTube,” he says. “If I’m not there, I want to make it as easy as possible for my sculptures to be installed.”
Read more about the project in this news release and see the sculpture in its official photo on its own page.
Meanwhile, Crimson Singularity (shown at left just after it came back from the powder coater) is on its way to its new home at a Denver law firm. Part of Kevin’s Never-Ending series, this sculpture is an umbilic torus in the vein of Wherever You Go, There You Are and Torrent. “This sculpture is more muscular, and the color contributes to its power,” Kevin says.
With a little more room in the studio, Kevin is ready to start a new commission for a Phoenix couple. Celestial Symmetry will be another sculpture in the Ball and Post series. “Like some of my other recent sculptures, this one will likely use color as part of the composition,” Kevin explains.
Keep an eye on the Works in Progress section of the Web site to watch this and other sculptures develop.
UNDER WAY IN THE STUDIO
In addition to Celestial Symmetry, Kevin has been working on three other sculptures. One is Sheleen, a sculpture he began while working with one of his educational clients who came to town to learn more about shaping metal.
Although it was based on Kevin’s design for the sculpture She, Sheleen (above in the opening photo) took on its own conformation as it developed. “Sometimes you have to let them manifest their own forms,” Kevin observes. “If it wants to be Marilyn Monroe, you have to let it.” See Sheleen, with its form completed and as it awaits its finish, on its own page.
Meanwhile, Kevin has started a larger rendition of She. “I’ve approached the framework of this version differently,” Kevin explains. Once again, however, fabricating the sculpture calls for making metal flow in ways it isn’t accustomed to. “It’s been quite a challenge thus far, but it feels great when it comes together,” Kevin adds. Watch it develop on its own page.
Recently completed is the 5-foot-tall aluminum sculpture Building Blocks (above left). After much patient application, Kevin finally feels comfortable with its patina. “This is part of my progression in the use of color,” he says.See this sculpture on its own page.
