My paintings and silver point drawings are of a representational narrative genre. The oil paintings are executed in the “Flemish Painting Style” - realism created by many thin transparent layers of paint on wood or canvas. The method is a lengthy one, and is best suited to miniatures, realism, and painting that requires a very high degree of detail and surface finish. The silver point drawings are created with a piece of Sterling Silver (or 18k gold) rather than the more common graphite pencil. The silver metal tarnishes over time giving the drawings a delicate, antiquated look.
I portray a specific place and time with simultaneous empathy and detachment. The viewer is left to fill in the blanks of each pieces story line of improbable and sarcastic juxtapositions. The Female form puts new life in old narratives, powerfully & unapologetic taking control.
Killen Studios Inc is the manufacturing end of my work: Killen Studio Acrylic System TM , which is being private labeled by RISD as “RISD Acrylic Color” and The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in NYC.
