Dave Kinsey debuts his new body of work, “Ashes to Ashes,” at Die Kunstagentin in Cologne, Germany on February 5. Known for his bold color palette of deep blues and aquatic teals with jarring, red accents, Kinsey went in an abstract direction with this new series of paintings. While humanoid characters are discernible, Kinsey only creates the slightest semblance of recognizable figures. Dabs of color coalesce into desolate landscapes with seemingly gigantic characters towering overhead. Because of Kinsey’s techniques, the narrative aspect of the work gets muffled and its formal qualities come to the forefront.
