Episode Eighteen features Brooklyn based painter-sculptor Kennedy Yanko.
Kennedy’s practice is profound, and her work is unique. She has redefined her paintings as skins and combines these unconventional paintings with metal and other hard found objects and creates beautiful, unexpected sculptures.
“Since debuting sculptures from her “Elements and Skin” collection as part of a Derrick Adams-curated group show, “Hidden in Plain Sight” (Jenkins Johnson Project Space. Brooklyn, NY. 2017),” Kennedy has exhibited her work in several solo and group shows and has been the recipient of several prestigious awards.
Upcoming and current exhibitions include the following:
Solo Show, SALIENT QUEENS, Vielmetter. Los Angeles, CA. Fall 2020.
Group show, SITE: Art and Architecture in the Digital Space, Library Street Collective. May 1-July 2020.
Group show, PARALLELS AND PERIPHERIES, Anna Marra Galleria. Fall 2020.
Public sculpture, 3 WAYS, Sculpture for New Orleans. New Orleans, LA. 2019-2021
I look forward to following her for years to come. Her work is aesthetically beautiful. Links to Kennedy Yanko’s expanded bio are provided. Enjoy.
