Bemis Center For Contemporary Arts

Kevin Demery

Chicago, IL

Kevin Demery’s work sits on the borders of painting and sculpture in order to blur the definition of mediums. He triangulates biography, American politics, and images related to trauma and impoverishment within the African American community to address these themes through stylistic influences of post-minimalism and pop art, while simultaneously making reference to urban landscapes. While at Bemis, Demery will dedicate time to researching and making structures like barriers, signs, and swing sets that signify specific relationships to the body, and through color or transfiguration, augment the form to create a melange of new meanings.
