Kevin Muente’s Forgotten Land

May 13th, 2018  |  Published in April/May 2018

Kevin Muente’s show “Forgotten Land” is currently up at Marta Hewett Gallery, located in Cincinnati’s Pendleton neighborhood. He uses figures within these landscapes to create a narrative through single or multiple images. Often the images echo classical or referenced figures from orthodox art.

Moving in a different direction from his traditional landscapes, Muente stages photos of friends and family posed with costumes or props in carefully selected locati...

Kevin Cole’s “Increase Risk with Emotional Faith,” a mixed media wall sculpture, will be featured in the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History & Culture. “Since 1992, my work has evolved to include the relationship between color and music, especially music as it relates to the African-American community,” said Cole in an interview with ArtDaily. Also included in the Smithsonian’s collection will be fellow Atlanta artist Fahamu Pecou.

Cole’s works are held in over 2,000 public and private collections, including the High Mus...

Havana, Mar 17 ( EFE ) - The "unrestrained optimism" and the apparent happiness that the commercials of the 1950's were selling serve the Cuban artist R10 to document in a very personal way the "thaw" between the island and the US in The Banana Issue a show that the designer will exhibit this month in the northern country.

This will be the first solo exhibition by Jorge Rodríguez Diez (Havana, 1969) in the United States, an opportunity "fortunate" in the middle of the renewed state of bilateral tension and the virtua...

For all the distance between them, Tony DeVarco and Mayako Nakamura have uncanny aesthetic affinities. Both revere the cycles and surprises of the natural environment; both attempt, in the same visual plane, to capture fluid forms and the emotions they evoke; both frame the viewer’s experience as a creative act rather than one of static reception. Whether working alone or together, the artists investigate apparent contradictions: the materiality of affect, the evanescence of solid...

Depending on where you stand when you view them, Kevin Muente’s landscapes can be two different paintings.  When seen from a distance, they initially appear to be works of almost photographic realism.  When you get close to the paintings and notice his finely detailed brush strokes, the formal composition of the work dissolves.  Forest trees and undergrowth, flowing water, fields of snow, twilight sky become abstracted lines, forms, and colors.  It turns out the paintings actually exist somewhere between these two extremes.  The fluctuating qua...
