BIOGRAPHY

STANFORD KAY

Born in Brooklyn, New York. 

 

THE ARTIST'S STATEMENT:

"I am interested in painting that is formally abstract, yet referential. The images are arrived at through a process of unconscious painting. As the work progresses, opportunities present themselves, form is teased out, a nexus of color asserts itself and an image takes shape. My personal relationship to the imagery, whether it is a collection of books, artifacts, or the stuff that makes up a life, has to do with loss, ambition, impermanence, memory, and identity."
