Kenn Kwint: Primitive Marks
October 3, 2018–January 8, 2019
MOWA On the Lake
Kenn Kwint describes his paintings as “primitive marks on a sophisticated ground.” He initiates his creative practice without any preconceived subject matter, allowing his abstractions and portraits to gradually emerge out of intricate lines and layers of paint. The highly tactile and emotionally charged results testify to Kwint’s passionate love affair with the act of painting. This exhibition draws on a recent gift from the Kohler Foundation of sixteen works spanning several decades, which show Kwint to be adept with oils, acrylics, ink, and prints.
