Kenise Barnes Fine Art is pleased to present the third iteration of our favorite exhibition: Crazy Beautiful. The 2018 edition features paintings and sculptural objects that are celebratory and expansive, each work a conscious offering of pleasure and outright, unabashed beauty. Luscious painting in a variety of media ranging from oil to encaustic to resin and powdered pigment by artists Jackie Battenfield (Brooklyn, NY), Mary Judge (St Louis, MO and Brooklyn, NY), Rachel Hellerich (New Haven, CT), Jenny Kemp (Utica, NY), Molly McCracken Kumar (Portland, OR), Joanne Mattera (Salem, MA and NYC) and Janna Watson (Toronto, Canada) are stunning contributions to this show. Catherine Latson’s (Yonkers, NY) nature-inspired wall sculptures and Peter Pincus’ (Rochester, NY) chromatic porcelain vessels further underscore the theme of the exhibition. Individually and collectively the work in this show is, well, just crazy beautiful.
