Kevin Perkin

Kevin Perkins is an American artist and teacher working from his home studio in Dallas, Texas. His practice encompasses landscape and figurative painting in which he pulls technique and material from the cannon of art history as well as life experience.

Perkins exploration in painting intends to draw the viewer into the space of the work. With his landscapes this is done in various ways:  through color, a sense of depth and light and an element of mystery.  His works are meant to be experienced as windows into vaguely familiar spaces that invite the viewer in for a time.
