Kenneth E. Parris III
Brooklyn, NY



ARTIST STATEMENT: Through mixed media paintings, graphite drawings, and watercolor, my work explores interpersonal relationships and the human condition to consider how one’s actions affect the surrounding human landscape. With a multidisciplinary practice, intense on research and process, layers of image, paint, type, and paper become a tactile representation of the act of questioning how we relate to and form systems of belief—social, political and/or religious. I am looking beyond barriers associated with race, gender, and self-identity to appeal to more of a visceral connection by focusing on our common struggle. Anchored in the human form and tension, the work is a personification of manipulative forces. I am striving to make work that is a catalyst for an open exchange of thought and create some permanence to what is too often overlooked.
