"Nothing Preciuos Solo Show By Keith Linton at ART227
Come join us at ART227 for the opening reception of Artist Keith Linton. He previously shown in the "No Holds Barred" group show and created a very good buzz with only 3 pieces, come join us and see the whole space transformed to a inside peak of the artistic mind of Keith.
Keith's work begins with contemporary, industrial products such as foams, plastics, and other synthetics. In their raw, original state, these appear cold and manufactured. His attempt is to enliven and give character to these materials through multiple processes giving them a sense of history. Collections of objects are assembled then taken to a detrimental state when a piece remains unresolved. This disregard is executed with intent of reproducing and showing evidence of uncontrollable and unforgiving energy, taking influence from forces of nature, the structure of the universe, as well as the artist's thought and creative process. Revivication takes place with application of layers of paint, fragments left over from previous pieces, or fresh synthetics. Additions are made on an immediate basis and are intended to visually or structurally improve weak areas. This process of addition and subtraction provides several templates that are revisited.
