James Kirkpatrick

From July 12th to July 30th
Opening July 14th, 2006 from 7-10pm

Born out of the collision of street and fine art, new paintings by Thesis / James Kirkpatrick blend the influence of freight painting and the emergence of the Character Based Art scene. Scratching and carving into built up surfaces of paper, encaustic and acrylic paint, Kirkpatrick transfers his characters from the moving steel of trainyards onto the walls of the gallery while maintaining and honouring the effect of these diverse surfaces on his practice.
