The work of Kevin Messer, Berea College Alum, is currently on display on the main floor of Hutchins Library. Make sure to enjoy it in person, now through November 24th.
Messer, on the meaning of art and the process of creating it:
“For me, artwork has always been the craft in service to the visual image — and trying to bring the internal vision to reality is always the struggle. Perhaps that struggle is because I am largely self-taught, learning through trial and error what works for me. My most recent artwork typifies that experimental approach: it leverages new tools and technologies that didn’t exist 20 years ago. My new work combines traditional media with these new technologies for striking images of light and color, all made by hand in my home studio. Nevertheless, the “eye of the artist” remains the same.”
