Kevin Kitner - December 2006

Myths and legends are with us everyday.  A dictionary definition of the word myth says it “…explains some phenomenon of nature…usually involving the exploits of gods or heroes.”  People, as natural phenomena, ask the eternal questions “Who am I?”, “Where do I come from?” and “Where am I going?”  We all have unknown myths within us to answer these questions and my work comes from that unknown place.  My myths come from everyday materials.  Once I’ve collaged paper bag, cardboard, etc into a canvas, I’ll round out a “Rorschach” image with pencil, charcoal and paint.
