Like his paintings’ subjects, Kenedi’s colors are full of life, they awaken our senses and hearts to how we choose to interact with one another.
“The Human Side” includes works from past collections, but mainly features paintings completed during our year-long lockdown. This exhibit includes multicultural influences from Africa, Asia, Europe, and the U.S. The works chosen for this show have a common thread. They each show the human response to a situation. It is the depth of human reaction that he paints.
He calls his work “Commentary Art.” Some people call it political art, but Kenedi prefers to see it in broader terms, focusing on the mysteries and ironies of the human experience.
