This is the first solo museum exhibition for Texas-based artist Ted Kincaid. For the past 30 years, Kincaid has used the medium and history of photography to subvert systematically the notion of an objective photographic record. His art continues to investigate the play between painting and photography and creates a new painting informed by photo-imagery and a new photography influenced by painting.
The exhibition focuses on a series of Kincaid’s digital dissections of skyscapes from his own photographs, as well as skies from the paintings of historical artists, which he uses as base elements to stitch together an entirely new pixel-based rendition of the firmaments. Nothing has been added nor taken away, but instead radically reordered.
Exhibited and collected nationally, Kincaid has received considerable critical attention for his photographically based work. He has been reviewed in Artforum, Artpaper and Art on Paper, and his work is included in the permanent collections of the Dallas Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, the Museum of Fine Arts in San Antonio, the Neiman Marcus Collection, American Airlines, the Belo Corporation, the Microsoft Corporation, Pfizer, Inc, Reader’s Digest Corporate Collection, the City of Seattle, Washington, the U.S. State Department and the Human Rights Campaign Headquarters in Washington, D.C. One of his large cyanotypes will also be on view at the Georgia Museum of Art, in its Barbara and Sanford Orkin Gallery.
