KP Projects is proud to present Greg “CRAOLA” Simkins 7th solo show with the gallery: The Escape Artist.
In the midst of modern society’s preoccupation with digital media, and the incessant effort to blur the distinction between fact and fiction through technological manipulation, Simkins revives the childhood curiosity of play and make believe. The Escape Artist recaptures nostalgic memories of new experiences, the feeling of youthful excitement, and the inventiveness of daydreams, a novelty that can get lost in today’s age of instantaneous documentation. Each painting frames an alternate universe, an escape from the ordinary world around us, through meticulously fine brush strokes, detail, and saturated blends of paint. As we peer into the ‘Outside’, a new world of imagination is unveiled.
