Kevin Flood | Emotional Formalism
6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
602 East Hastings
Vancouver, British Columbia
Kevin’s life and practice reside for the most part in Vancouver but his current body of work bare private and nostalgic inference to collective histories and remote geographies – his own and those behind the abstract works of mid last century. The histories differentiate themselves motivationally in that Flood’s work is not in opposition to representational work or the constructs of expression, but rather he sees the freedom of that expression as an opportunity to intuit thought or emotion formally –it is memory channeled rather than analyzed, experience layered and sculptural rather than rationalized.
Encaustic has proved the ideal medium as his works emerges as honest and muscular representations of emotion.
