Florida Mining is pleased to announce "DOPE," an exhibition of recent works by Marcus Kenney, opening January 20th, 2017. This exhibition marks a new ideological venture for Kenney's work, increasingly influenced by ideas of intimacy and passion. The show features many of his signature assemblages, for which Kenney has become well known.
His latest work signals a new complexity in his invented characters, a multidimensionality that is revealed through more relational works. His work remains heavily influenced by Southern culture, his relationships immersed in the history of the South, and the complex political climate influenced by both the history, and future, of the country. The work reemphasizes Kenney's position as a master of assemblage and creation, his materials binding passion and societal context.
