‘South Of The River’ tells the story of Kevin’s year-long experience living abroad. A progression from the innocent, playful spirit of Kevin’s last body of work ‘Strobe’; the artworks in ‘South Of The River’ are imbued with sombre, occasionally dark undertones and a sense of maturity and growth both visually and metaphorically.
Memories of significant people, places and events are personified through a new cast of creatures and characters. Touching on themes of displacement, seasonal metamorphosis and self-discovery, the new works are abstracted re-imaginings echoing the artist’s underlying narrative of pivotal experiences and reflective insights.
