Tambaran 2 Gallery | April 2019
Tambaran 2 Gallery and The TAX Collection are pleased to present 'Americana' - a solo exhibition by New York artist Kevin Champeny. Opening April 11th, Champeny's latest exhibition explores current issues in America including: politics, mental health, gun violence, beauty, social media and drugs. The work will be on display at The Tambaran2 Gallery on 82nd street, just steps from The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Champeny reinvents the traditional mosaic with his sculpted, cast and hand placed pieces creating an interactive platform. He encourages the work to be viewed from both up close and far away, allowing the observer to derive meaning from its juxtaposition.
Champeny states “Mosaics enable me to elicit the tension and stories between hand sculpted and cast pixels and the overall image they compose. I want my art to open a conversation for the viewer. I hope people discovering and viewing my pieces will connect their own experiences to the choices I made when creating the work”.
