Kimo Minton American, b. 1950
While Kimo Minton's sculptures and paintings reference cubism, African ritual sculpture and artistic traditions from Asia, the South Pacific and Indian America, they are clearly the products of a calculated postmodern sensibility. Like the Modernists' embrace of forms and techniques, Minton's works remind us of the vast gulf that separates Western and non-Western approaches to art and life. This influence offers a spiritual, heroic demeanor filtered through the artist's own Asian and Hawaiian heritage.
