Over the past six years within Kevin’s work, one can see transitions in media from painting, video, physical computing, and more recently to 2-dimensional digital prints. Through this synthesis of media, the conceptual investigation of the natural world through charts, diagrams, and systems is a constant theme. His early work used solar energy to power a fictional television station, while more recent work uses sensors to create an interactive video installation that questions entropy.
Kevin has exhibited throughout the United States, Asia, and Europe. His work has been featured in ID Magazine, Idea Magazine, Neural Online, The New York Times and MSNBC. Most recently, he has exhibited his work at Art Lab Akiba in Tokyo, Japan; The Anderson Gallery at Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond VA; Rudolph Blume Fine Art / ArtScan Gallery in Houston, Texas; the Thompson Gallery at Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina; Stasjon K in Sandnes, Norway; and 1708 Gallery in Richmond, VA.
