KEVIN MCNAMEE-TWEED, SHERTS AND DREAMS
August 1 — September 29, 2015

Sherts and Dreams is a collection of canvas that has been cut or stretched and colored using fat brushes and watery pigments. The body of work regularly references clothing or textiles; sometimes unwillingly, sometimes directly. While there are numerous nods to branding and rampant cultural jests, it is balanced by a number of more pious attempts to communicate purely by means of color and composition. Between these opposing contexts, individual pieces must find their way by embracing their vague familiarity and seeking authentic epiphany.

Kevin McNamee-Tweed is an artist and curator based in Austin, Texas. Raised in North Carolina, he graduated from NYU in 2007.
