About Kevin Appel

View Profile »

Kevin Appel‘s paintings explore the relationship between physical space, architecture and the painted image. Using photographs as a ground on which to build his painting, he applies layers of paint that act as screens, compressing the perceived space. The act of looking through one element to another, or the blocking of one impenetrable layer by another has become a signature of his technique. His latest body of work references Jean Prouvé's Maison Tropicale and Paolo Soleri's Arcosanti, as well as his own previous work. Appel's paintings are prismatic collages where images and forms are pulled from one canvas and used in another, engaging in a recursive dialogue and investigation of old and new imagery.
