Join Brandt-Roberts Galleries in celebrating the opening of Kendric Tonn's solo exhibition this March!

Classically trained painter Kendric Tonn brings a fresh and distinctive perspective to traditional subjects as an artist working today. His most recent body of oil paintings consists of nude figures, and of still-lifes both austere and playful. In the figurative work, the human form takes center stage, represented with impressive anatomical accuracy. The flesh tones of his sitters conjure the works of such significant painters as John Singer Sargent, Rembrandt and Albert Moore. Beyond simple depictions, Tonn aims to convey the models’ anima: their internal lives and sense of self. In Tonn’s own words, he is always interested in “creating a sympathetic engagement with another human being.”

Of the more than twenty new works, Tonn will also showcase a selection of exquisite still lifes. The structured arrangement of the objects, intentionally placed hues, and dramatic lighting lend a sense of importance to inanimate items. Like a musician, Tonn weaves these disparate elements throughout his works, creating lyrical compositions imbued with a studied connection to his chosen subjects.

Opens March 10th from 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. On view through April 2nd.
