Biography & Artist's Statements

Kevin Koch's oil paintings are strongly influenced by the impressionist and post-impressionist movements. His artwork includes vivid colors, thick application of paint, distinctive brush strokes, real life subject matter, with emphasis on geometric forms, distortion for expressive effect, and use of saturated and primary colors.

Color is typically applied directly, mixing on the canvas creating a vibrant surface. Darks are produced by mixing complementary colors. Short, thick strokes of paint are used to capture the essence of the subject, rather than exact details. In a world where modern technology has led to the proliferation of digital photography, his paintings consciously offer hand crafted subjective alternatives to photo reality.

Subjects reflect a love of an active lifestyle, nature, and the great outdoors.
