Kevin Perkins’ practice encompasses landscape and figurative painting in which he pulls technique and material from the cannon of art history, as well as life experience. Kevin’s recent undertaking of portraiture is an exploration into the subtleties of human expression and the effect that color has on the viewer’s perception the subject.
His paintings intend to draw the viewer in to the space of the work. With his landscape paintings, Kevin achieves this through his use of colour, a sense of depth, perspective and light. It is this vein in which he explores portraiture. The figures are not dissimilar to the mythic siren, drawing the viewer in and hold them there. His paintings are meant to be experienced purely aesthetically. “My paintings are windows into another world that invite you in for a time,” says Kevin.
By choosing to pair landscape and portrait, the artist turns us into voyeur of both plant and human worlds, where we are left to ponder their connection to each other, or to our own space. With a distinct vintage vibe, Kevin Perkins has created a collaboration between worlds past and present.
