Featured Member Exhibition: Kevin Giese
January 16 – April 4, 2015
We proudly continue our 2014–2015 Featured Member Exhibition installment with artist Kevin Giese‘s “Glass House” and “My Buddhist Cave” series. The “Glass House” presents the overlapping and divide of the inner self and the outer world through ambiguous boundaries created of sharp incised lines and ghostly shadows in black and white landscapes. “My Buddhist Cave” represents the inner world and the different states of mind as they come and go. Kevin was one of three artists in the 2011 WPCA exhibition “Quiet.”
Join us for the opening reception on Winter Gallery Night.
Kevin Giese received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1992 and Master of Fine Arts degree in 2007, both from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. He has exhibited throughout Wisconsin and the Midwest in solo and group shows. Some highlights include the Dean Jensen Gallery, Cardinal Stritch University, Northwestern Mutual Life, and Lawrence University. Kevin’s installation “Ancestor” was 2014’s featured Winter Chapel at Portrait Society Gallery.
Kevin’s choice of imagery and materiality in his artworks reflect his affinity with the natural world. The conceptual framework and working process that began during the early period of his career has matured for his present drawing and installation work. Kevin is an associate lecturer at the Peck School of the Arts UW-Milwaukee, where he teaches courses in drawing, sculpture and advanced woodworking.
