Saturated Subconscious - Ben Parks & Kyle Selley
This spirited and thought-provoking duo-exhibition fills the walls with large, colorful paintings pairing brilliant portraits and fiery abstraction. Ben Parks' and Kyle Selley's artwork is united through color, scale, and motivation. The deep and vibrant shades of blue allow for a cohesive curation of visual intrigue. These monolithic paintings are first recognized from across the room and progressively provoke an engagement on an intimate level as minute details begin to reveal the artist's process.
Ben Parks and Kyle Selley are artists living in the Kansas City, MO area.
