A couple weeks ago I stopped in at Kent Place Gallery to see Ken Weathersby 's show The Reverse Side Also Has a Reverse Side. We had quite a nice chat about his work and art world stuff. I found the work intellectually and visually engaging and challenging. It is work that makes the viewer think and ask questions. Go to his website to read about it.
If you have read my post about titles, this is one case where titles are not needed. The work is very present and specific without titles. You can see more of his work on his blog.
"I create optically active paintings on canvas, often modified or interrupted by physical displacements, dissections, insertions or reversals.""171", two painted panels inset in wall.
"I'll call it a list of ten artists, rather than, "my top ten influences", that helps. The list of ten artists below includes mostly those whose work I have returned to and liked over a long period of time, ten years at least, more in some cases, and definitely leaves out some who've been very important to me. Any selection seems false, but... parlor games like this are impossible and not fun if you take them too seriously, so here, not ranked by preference, are my ten for now:"
