For a couple of years has Kenneth-Edward Swinscoe concentrated his
oil painting with the reduction of the colours to black
white contrasts to which he adds a few specific coloured
accents. In his graphic appearing and often surrealistic
artworks he plays with the perspective. Playfully he works
with this and a specific use of light and shade contrasts.
He lets the three aspects of symbolism and mysticism flow
into is works, to which he adds a defamiliarization of the
Not only visual surreal space is created on the canvas but also portraits of famous personalities and people from the neighbourhood
I would like to cause a spatial depth in my works, which plays with the apparent three-dimensional effects. The gaze of the observer shall be first drawn to the middle of the picture and only later to expand to the outer areas of the work.
It's the photo realism and the fine detail in the works which draws the observer into its spell.
Not only the apparent surreal three-dimensionality room is made on
the canvas, but also portraits of famous personalities and
"people from the neighbourhood" It is the photo realism with
every last little detail which draws the observer of these
pictures into his spell.
His surreal thoughts appear again in the sculpture wood objects which Kenneth-Edward Swinscoe has recently, started to create. The organic forms joined together with the natural qualities of the wood. The natural treatment of the wood lets undreamt discolorations emerge.
These objects are married to basalt using a high polished brass plate.
The Objects place questions to the observer and communicate with Kenneth-Edward Swinscoes paintings.
|The worlds of the constructivist and the Surrealist|
|The constructivist creates a strict, architectonic work, that should serve the structural art.|
The surrealist on the other hand serve's only the fantasy, in
the same way as the music.
He forms an imaginative world about real form elements, that escape from the frame of the dream.
|The sense of my architectonic works is, that the character the architecture and music near each other, in order to join the surreal with the constructive form's, so that an imaginative art develops.|
