All are welcome to an Artist Talk by Kenny Cole, about his exhibition, ‘Low Energy’ in the Project Space of the Cynthia Winings Gallery, Friday, July 8, 5 – 6pm
‘Low Energy’ is an exhibition of large-scale ink and gouache paintings on Shuen paper, by artist Kenny Cole, on view in the gallery’s second floor Project Space. Presented are cross-sectional imaginings of the vast underground salt caverns of the Strategic Petroleum Reserve, rendered as irregular black voids embedded into colorful layers of geologic strata. The 700 million barrel capacity Reserve, first started by the U.S. after the 1973 energy crisis, is currently releasing oil to curb shortages created by the pandemic and the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
