Artist Spotlight : Kevin Cyr
9 September. 2016
In the spirit of our next exhibition…
Kevin Cyr was born in 1976 in Edmundston, New Brunswick, and grew up in Madawaska, Maine. In 2000, he received a BFA from Massachusetts College of Art in Boston. Cyr is currently based in the Portland Maine area. Cyr includes a meticulous level of detail in his portrait-like representation of modern day utilitarian vehicles, with devoted attention to every imperfection and sign of age. Removing the context of the landscape or setting, he places a strong focus on his subjects by isolating them in fields of flat, solid color.
Matthew Namour Gallery is proud to announce our next show, a new series by Kevin Cyr of vehicles found in the streets of Montreal: Hommage. More info : Kevin Cyr | “Hommage” – Vernissage
