Living and working in Toronto, Kieran Brent has a degree from Ontario College of Art & Design. ‘In my work I am exploring various tensions involved with the illusory nature of representational painting.” he suggests. In addition, she adds that “The artificial space of the painting is emphasized through the distorted figuration and void ground“. His portraits, although abstract, they describe fully the person he paints each time. The result is impressive. Enjoy.
