Kevin Appel  "Salton Sea (dock)  48"x60" oil and uv cured ink on canvas over panel 2012

Apple has an interesting mix of photographic and painterly approaches to his work. The ground is a digital photo, in this case scenes of the Salton Sea, that he paints into and on to achieve his desired affect. His compositions are formally astute and harmonious. The application of color and texture set up an interesting dialectic as it redefines the photographic ground. All together, a quite satisfying experience.
