KEVIN O'BRIEN - biography

Influenced by Van Gogh (and Abstract Expressionism), Klee, Dubuffet, surrealism, pop art, Rauschenberg, jimi hendrix and high-energy jazz (e.g., Coltrane). I try to use materials which I consider to represent the basic building blocks of industrial culture, and incorporate them into my paintings. I use high-energy in my paintings to represent life's energy. In my three dimensional work, I try to use my own crude carpentry to build the infrastructure. Concept is important, but for me, the work must also show the hand of the artist. I disdain the slick and polished in favor of my own primitive techniques which I have developed over the last 36 years.
