NSR GALLERY | perception of hierarchy: new works by kevin thayer
september 6, 2019 - septemper 28, 2019

Cottonwood Center for the Arts is thrilled to present the art of Kevin Thayer for the month of September. His collection titled “Perception of Hierarchy” takes a closer look at the relationship between men and women and the way it is defined in society.

Kevin Thayer has an MFA from the University of Cincinnati. He has taught film and alternative process photography with private workshops on digital and studio photography. Solo exhibition venues include the Manitou Springs Center of Photography, Phototroph, the Mercury and the Manitou Art Center. His work was displayed at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center, the Gallery of Contemporary Art and recently at the Indianapolis Art Center.

Artist Statement: Women are enigmatic. They fuel my work. Through this series, I am seeking to define the dichotomy of language between man and woman. Even as a child, I have experienced the guilt of desire. This work is a journey to expresses that struggle; the wall I experience engaging in these interpersonal relationships.
