Kenneth Kaminski will exhibit eight large-scale paintings, which show the full range of symbolic and painterly approaches that he has employed over the past two decades. The artist created this body of work in response to the September 11, 2001, attack on the World Trade Center, capturing the emotional reverberations of that event.
Kaminski has created a series of paintings that depict the Twin Towers at the moment of impact, and the subsequent destruction. The artist is both a witness to history and a recorder of his own impassioned involvement with a central event in contemporary American life. Kaminski has written, “What is most important is for this work to leave an historically accurate legacy to ensure that all global citizens remember what happened.”
Kenneth Kaminski (right) received his BFA from Bradley University and his MFA from Parson School of Design – Otis Art Institute, and was based in Hackettstown, NJ until just recently. He has another upcoming exhibition in the fall of 2015 at the Rensselaer Newman Foundation Chapel + Cultural Center in Troy, NY. Kaminski has shown his work at Broadway Windows, New York University; Z Gallery, New York; Richard/Bennett Gallery, Los Angeles; Nividia Gallery, San Diego; North Gallery, Los Angeles; Hurlbutt Gallery, Greenwich, CT.
