2 Palms Up

said each of us are made of a trillion cells
and we are space dust elements re aligned 

as particles
skiing high alpine bowls
scale is curious
is the earth little or is it huge

painting is not bat suit flyin
or flippin mtn bikes off geology spine, lumberjack
or navy seal 

painting is a luxury

Red Orb - acrylic on canvas

—Kevan Krasnoff explores the West, he creates not what he sees but rather the way he feels from the view, from the experiences of life and filters his vision down to a moment in time.  He abstracts the image with enough representation and formal structure to offer the viewer a gateway, a portal...into their own imagination and memory.

This exhibition illustrates Kevan's talent and expertise of a wide range of media (paint, steel, stone and wood) that he utilizes to capture the fundamental nature of the world around him. Through employing found objects, welded steel and stone, he creates exclusive landscapes that swirl with color, energy and texture. 

Please visit the Lincoln Gallery to view this renowned artist's interpretation of the western canyons, prairies, mountains and infinite sky. For more information please contact 303-245-4637 or visit
