Ken Anbender

Ken Anbender’s work is wonderful. There is plenty of variety and his use of colour and form is fantastic. At first glance some of the collages seem like surreal paintings but on closer look you can see the cuts. This looks to me like mostly cut and paste. I always read the artist’s statement and come away a little bewildered. They sound so high minded. Mr. Anbender’s is no different. But his work is terrific stuff.

“I enjoying painting in a variety of styles and mediums exploring metaphors of relationships through images.”

So says the artist Leslie Graff. In a series of paintings she hides or removes the head/face of her model. To be discreet? Is it a lover? Or herself? Is it every woman? It is very American.
