Art Reveal Magazine #58

Art Reveal Magazine just released their 58th issue!

Art Reveal Magazine just released their 58th issue. It also features a host of emerging and mid-career contemporary artists who inspire the creatives at Art Reveal. My painting ‘Love Actually: Coming to America’ is on the cover. 

In the interview, I speak on what I find challenging as an artist and the importance of art in contemporary culture. We also have a conversation on who and what has a lasting influence on my art practice.

🌿 Much of my past work was based on experiences, interactions, relationships, emotional growth, maturity, political and cultural themes while asking questions about the past and the historical significance.

Books, reading and information add to our work, help to re-shape our ideas and grow.  Check the list, shoot me a message on IG (@kestincornwall) with what book you want to check out!

PXP Contemporary X Showfields

PXP Contemporary X Showfields

I'm featured in a new show with Showfields NY. The exhibition is curated by Alicia Puig, Co-founder of PXP Contemporary. Showfields has had past hosts such as Maria Brito, Larry Ossei Mensah and others.

Here's more about the inspiration behind this curation:

"After spending most of 2020 indoors within the confines of our homes, we feel a collective longing for both nature and connection. These are two themes that are inherently a part of the artists' works that I've selected for this curation. Some present the human form immersed in a landscape or other natural environment, while others compose images with figures alongside animals, flowers, and insects. Working in the mediums of collage and painting, these artists remind us to appreciate the profound beauty of our surroundings and of the importance of having respect for it now and in the years to come.

These works also act as documentation of life as an artist during the pandemic. While they, like everyone else, experienced loss, grief, anxiety, frustration, and fear - like nature itself, they also went through periods of growth and renewal. For me, bringing together this collection of artists is a manifestation of the belief that 2021 will indeed allow for more opportunities to connect with the environment, ourselves, and each other. It's a sigh of relief, or rather, a breath of fresh air." - Alicia Puig
