New Work - Painting & Ceramics
Kevin McNamee-Tweed - Vessel
Cob Gallery presents Vessel, a selection of new ceramic paintings by American artist Kevin McNamee-Tweed.
Anchored squarely in the tradition of painting, these wall-hanging works are composed of home-mixed clay bodies and glazes, including materials dug up near the artist’s home in North Carolina, a locality known for its rich clay history.
The intimately scaled works depict human, animal and inanimate subjects in tenderly dramatic vignettes. With pathos and humor, they reveal fragments of wider narratives while focusing on moments of existential disquiet, incidental poignancy or confounding delight.
