of heroes, referencing

28Jan12

Painting lately, so am sharing some paintings that interest me. Alex Kanevsky‘s paintings are both vague and revealing at the same time. Vague, because of the blurred quality created by the lack of detail and loose brush strokes; and revealing because of the personal nature of the actions being depicted. I like how Alex disguises the identity of his subjects because it offers the viewer an opportunity to make their own connections. I also love his version of Nude Descending a Staircase. Many of the following paintings are from his series Heroes and Animals. Images via. I found out about Alex here.
