Oceanside Museum Of Art Presents 'Solo Exhibition: Kenneth Capps'

This exhibition traces Kenneth Capps’ extraordinary body of work from the early 1970s ink on paper and steel cut-out drawings suggesting three dimensional space to his more recent work that physically releases the line and form into three dimensional space. Within both his 2D and 3D works Capps engages shapes…distorting, bending and angling each in every which way to demonstrate the multitude of means in which one can discuss a singular form or idea.
As with most accomplished professional artists, Capps has produced several important series of works over four decades that are inextricably linked, sharing a common bond of dichotomies; rectilinear/curvilinear, convex/concave, open/closed, positive/negative, stable/unstable, always with the gestalt of wholeness embodied in the work. The sphere and square take center stage; either object or the distortions of said object are to be found in any work viewed within his long history.
Born in Kansas City, Missouri, Capps has been exhibited in numerous solo and group shows throughout the United States including the Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art, the Dusseldorf, Germany; and the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego, among others. In 1984 the Port of San Diego commissioned three of his “Konoid’ sculptures for Bay Side Park.
This exhibition will be on view March 22-July 6, 2014.
