DAVE KINSEY, CUSHION OF A MEMORY
SEPTEMBER 27 - NOVEMBER 8, 2014

 

Library Street Collective is very proud to announce CUSHION OF MEMORY, a solo exhibition of works by renowned artist Dave Kinsey. There are few artists whose work can evolve into something so different than their earlier work and make it look like graceful maturation. A master of self exploration who generously shares his soulful journey with us, Kinsey taps into not only his, but our own wildest fantasies. this body of work represents an awakening of sorts, with a new creative center deep in the Sierra Nevada mountains it's hard not to see natures bountiful inspiration reflected in Kinsey's dreamlike compositions.

Dave Kinsey was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, in 1971 and attended the Art Institute of Pittsburgh and Atlanta before moving to California in 1994 to pursue a career as a designer and fine artist. His work attempts to capture the universal essence of the human condition mainly through a symbolic portrayal of contemporary life. Utilizing a range of mediums, he constructs multi-layered, textured environments that echo the complexities of our existence. His fine art has been shown in galleries and museums worldwide and has been featured in local and international print and online publications from The New York Times and Washington Post to Hypebeast. Among many varied art and design accomplishments, Kinsey was recently selected to participate in an international Absolut artist campaign leading to the commissioned design of a signature Absolut Vodka bottle in 2013.
