Blog : Local Artist, Kenneth Joseph Bini's Exhibition at Zev Yoga

By Clay | Jun 3, 2014 | in

Drift Contemporary Art Gallery has announced their June/July exhibition located at the Zev Yoga Studio above Breaking New Grounds in downtown Portsmouth. Along with Bini, the gallery will feature a collaboration of local, national and international artists whose work will rotate through the studio. The public artist receptions will coincide with Portsmouth's Art 'Round Town gallery walk.

Bini describes the focus of his work as an exploration of a human figure's expressive nature in different scenarios, invoking a narrative and creating a dynamic between the figure's relationship with the ground.

"I generate these images through a rhythm of mark-making and reductive processes. Figures and figure groups emerge from a continual layering of paint and glazes and the scraping and scratching into the surface reveal, embellish and enhance the image," said Bini. "By cutting and working into these accumulated layers of pigment, I am able to create a surface that is complex and visually unpredictable. In each piece, I strive to connect with and crystallize the tension and mystery of contemporary life."

The exhibition will run from June 4 to July 30 featuring an artist reception on June 6 from 6:00-8:00 p.m. The artwork featured can be viewed at the public reception, by appointment, online or during any of the regularly scheduled yoga classes. All artwork available for purchase.
