Abstract Floral

Not for the meek, Kinnett's floral paintings are explosions of color. They are very complex, often cramming three or four layers of loosely drawn organic patterns into the flat space of a medium sized canvas. Sometimes consistent and sometimes purposefully inconsistent, the overlap of forms and the color refuse to create a deep space. Even the negative spaces are animated and intensified. Fragmented, covered with heavily outlined shapes, and textured with heavy imposto, these paintings are organic synthetic cubism. They are art that has both structure and passion. While very calculated and controlled, these flowers are nevertheless fresh, spontaneous, and lyrical. Most of all, they are splendors of color.
