The paintings of Kevin Tolman reveal the storied layers of an artist's creative process. Robert Kidd Gallery's spring exhibition focuses on the unfolding nature of Tolman's compositions, which manifest deep illusory spaces activated by brilliantly placed marks and forms. Each painting invites the viewer to peer through quiet veils of skillful, intuitively worked mixed media, offering a glimpse at richly percussive underlying fields.
Born in Detroit, Kevin Tolman spent the early years of his career traveling extensively throughout North America and Europe. In 1981, Tolman established a permanent studio in the colorful high desert of New Mexico, whose landscapes, light, and seasons continue to inspire the handsome, largely reductive palettes of his paintings to this day. Tolman's works have been exhibited for over four decades and are represented in numerous important public, private and corporate collections, both in the U.S. and abroad. Please join us for a reception to meet the artist, Saturday, April 28th, 5 - 8pm.
