Featuring: Kevin Broad
George Billis Gallery is pleased to announce Kevin Broad and his series of abstract works, Greater Than Less Than, at their New York location.
The opening reception will be held on Thursday, January 11th from 6 – 8 pm. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 10 – 6 pm.
This series, titled Greater Than Less Than, is inspired by Iceland and its inhabitants’ strength of spirit. The work is a collaboration with the extremes of nature (ice, wind, fire) with a portion of the pigments ground from lava rock and Icelandic earth minerals. To stand up to the forces of nature, concepts are expressed with bold graphic forms. Colors are primary and contrasting.
Broad’s creative process is experimental in nature, not only with materials but also conceptually. Ultimately, the series became a study of the ephemerality of intention in the face of natural elements, time, and the human mind. This work is a metaphor for the cycles and change in how we experience our lives.
The George Billis Gallery marks its 20th year in the Chelsea Art district and its sister gallery is located in the burgeoning gallery district of Culver City in Los Angeles.
