Artist’s Statement: Mourning Medication, collectively, is about questioning the human condition rather than an attempt at answering it. The inherent dichotomy embedded in Mourning Medication suggests that pain and suffering are, inevitably, unavoidable; and yet without the pain, along with the lure and temptation of physical, emotional, chemical and mental crutches, true growth has a hard time finding fertile ground. Kevin exercises a strong traditionalist foundation in photography, and along with layering techniques, including hand-colored negatives, etching, ink, oil and texturing, has created a cohesive, psychologically stimulating body of imagery which is intended to invoke reflection and arouse visual and emotional stimulation. Mourning Medication is a reminder of the promise of change. Above all, Mourning Medication is a celebration of hope. Kevin Paine is a graduate of Art Center College of Design. He resides in Los Angeles. This is his first solo exhibition.
