.kevin kepple

Kevin Kepple utilizes a unique combination of assorted glues, handmixed inks, and varnishes to create his richly textured, luminescent abstract paintings. While these works may at first appear to be comprised of random and haphazard patterns, the fluidity and immediacy reveals itself to be thoughtfully applied and deliberately weaved. Amazingly, the movement, energy, and emotion conveyed by Kepple’s work is in direct contrast to his chosen medium. Kepple is a Virginia based artist who grew up in rural southwestern Pennsylvania.
