Douglas A. Kinsey : Charcoal Drawings

::

“Looking at my work the viewer should consider them as configurations of spiritual geography. In this manner I refer them as “Interior/Exterior Landscapes”. The primary shape will refer to geological forms found in geographical landscape. As such they mark unspoken borders much like a rock cairn would…”

Doug approaches the development of his imagery with an expressed Zen-like economy. The strong subtle spiritual component remains as the most compelling attitude seen in his work. This abiding stillness expressed in the dark forms can at times produce a roaring sense of complete mystical silence. During this experience the viewer is asked to join and participate in the deeper mysteries which can occur during profound moments of inner-contemplation. By allowing the physical landscape aspects of his Ohio River Valley home to influence his primary shapes and forms a strong organic quality is defined. Doug’s work articulates the combining of the intellect with the spiritual truths to be found in nature. bio

    I am just discovering charcoal as a medium and wondered why I never used it before. I very much like your images and the sense of this as a spiritual landscape.
