Paintings by Kevin Sloan
Allegorical paintings infused with meaning that speaks of the beauty of nature but also maintains a balance with contemporary society.
With the addition of an allegorical and narrative element, my current work continues to explore natural history art as well as the sense of wonder and curiosity found in the old Cabinets of Curiosities. The natural world, now mostly understood and familiar is also increasingly threatened, making it once again rare and exotic. Freed from the need to describe for science, I can describe the natural world and our interaction with it through an allegorical, social and political lens.
