Kurt Ketchum (Rochester, NY) brings together elements of street art, Abstract Expressionism, stencil art, and graphic design in his paintings, graphics, and sculpture. Ketchum considers himself both influenced by and an active observer of street aesthetics, architectural decay, and skateboard culture. His visual language contains textured elements of high and low culture, often including slivers of numbers and type arranged in idiosyncratic and careful positions. Pieces of Ketchum’s paintings can just as easily allude to a sport team’s logo, as a loose numeric scribble, or an aging street sign with paint overs, all the results of the artist’s pursuit of his own universal vocabulary.
