On the occasion of the show Small is Big at Grunwald Gallery of Art, Indiana University, Bloomington, the exhibiting artists – Catherine Kehoe, EM Saniga, Ken Kewley, Eve Mansdorf and Tim Kennedy – answer questions about working methods, subject matter, scale, influences, and narrative.
Small is Big looks at small scale work from a figurative perspective. Tim Kennedy writes: "Veracity and sincerity are also qualities that paintings of modest scale convey exceptionally well. Painting on a small scale implies the role of witness on the part of the artist and the ability to truthfully record the perceived world – but it is truth honed with feeling. Small works permit the pleasure of touch. Small scale allows the artist to vicariously caress the things he or she paints."
The show will be on view from Oct 19 – Nov 16, 2012.
