Kenton Nelson


Paintings   |  Mosaics

 

NELSON’s thematic approach to painting varies from the relationships between men and women, loneliness, isolation, to the invisibility of the middle-aged man in modern society.  He appreciates how “private and simple our commonplace deeds are and recording and sharing these seems intimate.  The cropping of the figures in my paintings allows more input from the viewer with the intention of representing Everyman.
