Gifted Veil

New York-based artist Kenichi Hoshine’s paintings are characterized by a fluid melding of figural elements and painterly, free-form gestures that evoke a spectrum of moods and narrative possibilities. Inspired by a wide range of subjects—from film and television to theatrical sets, to found imagery—Hoshine’s practice is grounded in the experiences and occurrences of his daily life. Expressed through the formal vocabulary of abstraction, these seemingly common images and scenes take on newfound emotionality and a sense of underlying story. In this way, Hoshine’s paintings feel at once familiar and foreign, with the representational components providing critical touchstones for the viewer while evading any clear definition. Born in Tokyo, Japan in 1977, Hoshine grew up in New Jersey and studied in New York, where he attended the School of Visual Arts. Hoshine’s paintings have been exhibited widely in the U.S. and abroad. In addition to his studio practice, Hoshine has taught at the Pratt Institute in New York.
