Installation view March 4 – April 17, 2010 “Two years ago I entered my woodshop to make painted wooden objects once again. I had left object making for pure painting in the year 2000. In returning to the objects, I realized the importance of making work as unfettered of past experience as possible. It quickly became evident that there was no need to repeat myself. I wanted to make painted forms as directly as I […]
Our third VIEWLIST exhibition is conceived by New York painter Karen Schifano.
The word “inspire” (originally meaning “to infuse with breath”) is a verb, but can also transform itself into a noun or adjective. It’s very active, and yet also implies being receptive, even demands openness, a readiness to receive, and a sharpening of perception and awareness. From one thing, there is a direct connection to another thing, a kind of touch that is nurturing, rich and full of promise. Potential becomes realization; we wake up rejuvenated, re-energized, and ready for action.

View of Kevin Finklea’s studio, Philadelphia, PA “Brent: Kevin, you sent a studio shot of your new pieces. I can see how they fit with the flatter paintings, and what this new wood and paint work is doing. You mentioned that these pieces come about much quicker. Have you been going through a process of redefining time in your work? Do you think that changes a lot of things? Or is it that you […]

Agnes Martin, by Steve Karlik I went for a walk yesterday; a thin veil of snow cloaked the sidewalk. At once, grids became apparent. The accumulation of packed snow in the concrete’s seams made opaque grids, grids that were again defined by planes of less dense, more transparent layers of snow that covered the higher surfaces. The combination of these lines and planes brought me back to painting and why painting has significance for […]
The following interview was published on MINUS SPACE in October 2004 in conjunction with Kevin Finklea’s spotlight exhibition. Matthew Deleget: Let’s begin by talking about color, the central concern of your paintings over the past decade. You’ve worked in a pharmacy for over 20 years now, which you acknowledge has greatly affected your color sensibility. In fact, every time I see a television commercial for the acid reflux medicine, Prevacid, I think of your […]
The following interview was published on MINUS SPACE in March 2004 in conjunction with Richard Bottwin’s spotlight exhibition. Rossana Martinez: I would like to start our interview at the beginning of your career. You came of age as an artist during the early 1970s in and around New York City. What kind of work were you making at that time? Were there any specific artists, exhibitions, or events that had a profound impact on […]
