BRAIN BONE BLOOD is a solo exhibition by DS Kinsel that presents a collection of artifacts exploring abstracted anatomy, jujuism, and the amalgamation of identities.
BRAIN BONE BLOOD primarily presents a wide ranging set of canvas paintings depicting bold epicene forms. Each work presents a unique subject experiencing dissection, forcing an act of sacrifice of these unfamiliar bodies across diptychs, triptychs, and quadriptych. Bold brush strokes, text based pattern, and intense surface texture are the most present feature paintings by Kinsel. BRAIN BONE BLOOD not only acts as a title for this collection, but a sacred hymn repeated across the paintings in the act of spellcasting. Turning these obvious art objects into totems that display easily accessible conjurations of an unknown magic. Entirely new, this collection of paintings has never been shown publicly.
The additional artifacts featured in the exhibition serve as totems that demonstrate a symphony of personal stories. Reflecting the various ideas, techniques, and physical experiences held inside our BRAINS BONES and BLOOD.
