James Kennedy @ Mindy Solomon Gallery, Art Miami / Booth E5

Much of James Kennedy’s early work is rooted in landscape and its various abstractions. Since 2007 he has been exploring the placement of shape and form within those pre-existing frameworks. These paintings address a fascination with essential structures and arrangements, whilst exploring the linguistics of music, mathematics, dance and architecture.

Born in County Down, Northern Ireland, Kennedy has been a resident in the US since 2003. Kennedy was educated in the UK and Ireland with a Bachelor of Arts from the Royal Scottish Academy and an additional two Post Graduate diplomas in choreography and architectural design. In 2006 he co-founded Surface Library Atelier + Gallery with ceramist Bob Bachler. Their studios are now located in Long Island City.

James Kennedy's forthcoming exhibitions include Art Miami 2012, opening December 4th; Balance at Jeffrey Leder Gallery; Constructions and Compositions at Mindy Solomon Gallery; and A Fine Line - Kennedy and Koenigsberg at the Flinn Gallery in Greenwich, opening March 2013.
