Kevin Weckbach: Solo Exhibition

Of all the painters I know today, no one better exemplifies a well rounded artist than Kevin Weckbach. He has the skills of a virtuoso, the heart and expression of Van Gogh, and the ability to explore visual vocabulary the way an artist should. Truly a rare combination. Kevin is not bounded by any subject matter, but rather uses what is in front of him as a spring board to dive into making a picture. If there is light, he uses light to a high degree. If the situation is about some other visual problem, he understands and creates his own compositions from them. In my class years ago, Kevin was always able to take any idea I gave him ten steps further. As Walt Whitman put it so beautifully: "He most honors my style who learns under it to destroy the teacher."

History will appreciate such a talent as Kevin. I can look back and only count on one hand the number of artists that rivals what he can do.
