John Kissick

“John Kissick’s oil and acrylic paintings don’t have an accessible flow. If his clashing colors and loud patterns were translated into music, it would not be an easy groove. This disjunction gives his exhibition title its punch and his art its joy. Kissick disrupts the surface of his canvases with an intense and enlivening energy akin to hardcore dance music or techno. He creates this effect by scrambling Pop Art- like commercial colors and slinky forms into his densely packed imagery.”
