It's a been an incredible year so far with interest in my work sky rocketing and sales really booming. Even in this current climate things have gone from strength to strength with a number of large corporate commissions and some exhibition prize winning to boot. My work can now be viewed in my new website:
http://simonkenny.artweb.com I will be updating it shortly with additional pages, adding artwork, a checkout system with Paypal and so on.
I have a number of new abstract paintings now available that are on sale which have been created over the past six months or so.
I have begun working with oil and mixed media again after a long spell creating primarily in acrylic paint. Oil has always been a preferred medium but when I started using acrylics I loved the rapid drying time so could create a painting in a fraction of the time compared to oil so stuck with it for a few years. As you will see the abstract paintings below are varied in approach, and style. On the colour bursts I have been starting out with acrylics to create a bright base to work from, then finishing with oils and a little enamel paint.
The colour burst abstracts are all textured using various methods of manipulating modelling paste, structure gels and papers to create the desired effects. Then a huge amounts of glazes, impasto and palette knife work are applied to build up the layers and create the depth and form.
The new works are laid out below with current sale prices. As ever your feedback would be appreciated and please don't hesitate to contact me with your questions or interest in making a purchase.
