At the core of Kevin Sloan’s work is a deep concern and respect for our planet particularly its “silent inhabitants” – the animals and plants we share this world with. Through allegory and symbolism he expresses this concern and at the same time reminds viewers of the wonders in this extraordinary world.
He seeks to create a compelling body of work that can speak about our modern technological environment and simultaneously present images of natural balance, odd, unexpected beauty and mystery. His work consistently refers back to nature but also acknowledges contemporary society and thus creates a dialog between the modern world we’ve created and the fragile, quiet, yet always present natural environment.
Often lush, sometimes stark and theatrical, Kevin Sloan’s “allegorical realism” paintings always ask more questions than they present answers. They aspire to start a conversation about our relationship with nature in this modern, technological and quickly changing era.
