Wake County Justice Center (2nd, 3rd and 4th floors)
Paintings by Kenneth Proseus
January 21, 2020 through April 21, 2020
Kenneth Proseus is an abstract painter who has coined his process as "Abstract Essentialization." This is a process of existential reflection which condenses our shared small victories as people into abstracted forms. This series is inspired by the sensorial impact of historically rich works by artists such as Ellsworth Kelly and Frank Stella, while being technically approached with the control and sublimity seen in the work of contemporary artists such as Sarah Morris, Rachel Hellman and Richard Anuskiewicz.
