STEVEN KENNY opens portals into a surrealistic world brimming with beautifully mysterious occurrences and relationships. Loaded with a sophisticated and versatile symbolism, which draws heavily upon Kenny’s profound connection to nature and the animal kingdom, his paintings are captivating explorations into the human condition. Through them, the artist is on a journey, uncovering facets of his own personality and exploring ideas of both his, and by default, our, kinship with, and separation from, the rest of humanity and the natural world. However, the true power of Kenny’s images lies in their ability to speak to each and every one of us on a deeply personal level. Nothing is being dictated, prescribed or forced. His paintings deal in the universal language of the unconscious mind, and as such, are hugely responsive to our own life stories and all that goes into creating our unique sense of self.
