Fresh and Unconventional Work Which Pushes Boundaries and Challenges the Viewer
Barry Kite
March 3 – March 30

My art concerns concept and composition. I don’t draw. I am not a “painter”. I construct narratives, by borrowing other people’s images. Initially, I worked with found imagery from old books and magazines. A “cut and paste” image was re-photographed, blown up as a black and white photograph, then hand-colored. When photo labs I used went digital, I was forced to follow. My source material changed from what I could cut with an X-acto knife, to what I could find on the internet. This gave me much more latitude with my story lines.

Images bring with them their own interpretive baggage. People’s experiences with previously seen images color their interpretation of my work. Their awareness of this “manipulation” also enhances the experience.

I feel that I am a “matchmaker” who invites famous (and not so famous) images to a wild party, introduces them to each other – and sees who hits it off.
And if they embarrass themselves . . . so much the better.

THIS EXHIBIT

A survey of various series that I work in. All digitally composed, with over-painting to different degrees to enhance a painterly effect.

Exhibit opening Saturday, March 3
