One survivor stands among the fallen.
Are they brethren or victims?
Ancestors, or contemporaries?
All are cloaked in the care of handmade quilts.
They must have been loved,
even with their rough edges showing.
Gavin Kenyon, Born 1980 in Binghamton New York, lives and works in New York. He is represented by Galleria Zero, Milan.
Mass, tension, balance, membranes, surface quality and color. Working at the limits of materials with an attention to how matter behaves under stress. Finding equilibrium in failure. The abject position. These strategies and elements are used in Kenyon’s sculptures to speak of the frailty of bodies, loss, isolation and psychological repression on one hand as well as connection, care and the tenacity of life on the other.
