"Michael Kennaugh: Locus in Quo"

  • 25 Sep 2015
  • 29 Nov 2015
  • 500 Main Street, downtown Beaumont

Opening Reception: 6:30 -8:30 p.m., Friday, September 25


This fall 2015, we welcome Houston artist Michael Kennaugh for his first solo exhibition at AMSET. Kennaugh currently lives and works in Houston, but was born in Casper, Wyoming. He moved to Texas in 1965, and graduated from Lamar University in Beaumont with his BFA in 1986 and from the University of North Texas in Denton with his MFA in 1990. Kennaugh is known for his large, painterly abstract canvases with arabesque forms that lyrically sweep across the plane. Firmly grounded in drawing as his foundation, Kennaugh builds on these initial lines and creates shapes through an additive and subtractive process. He further develops his compositions with decisive and layered applications of grisaille tones and color hues as demanded by the shapes, yielding a physically invigorating and dynamic creation. This exhibition will feature many new works on canvas, as well as selected drawings and sculptures, which are akin to Kennaugh’s paintings in their focus on line, shape and form.
