Paintings by Kevin Sloan

Kevin Sloan currently lives and work in Denver, Colorado. Kevin received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting in 1981 from Tyler School of Art of Temple University, Philadelphia, PA. He then went on to study for his Master of Fine Arts at the University of Arizona, Tucson, which he was awarded in 1984. Kevin has since built up a huge following of patrons, has exhibited his work in countless galleries, in both solo and group exhibits and has had his work published in numerous publications.

Kevin Sloan’s ‘Allegorical Realism’ occupies a fascinating territory where the natural world and humanity’s cultural contributions collide. The deliberately awkward interchanges that occur give rise to relationships which at first may strike us as unbalanced, although on closer inspection display a nebulous harmony. Conversations are opened concerning how we interact with nature and the implications of our technological advancements on the environment we share with the rest of the animal kingdom.

Sloan masterfully utilises a broad swathe of universal, contemporary and personal symbolism in the construction of his narratives, thus allowing our own intellect and experience the freedom to extract relevant meaning from the beautiful mysteries on display.
