Instant Genius is a  show for local Patchogue artist Kenneth Ian. The show is named “Instant Genius” because of the speed that Kenneth makes his paintings. Most of his paintings are made within a day, and they fall into a category he calls “instant gratification art” Kenneth is a action painter that spills emotion into the canvas and needs that release almost instantaneously. This show will include paintings from his “loss of control” series, as well as his “insignificance” series. He will also be unavailing his largest painting to date. A 7 foot by 8 foot wall of a painting in-titled “Surrender”. Instant genius is sure to be a show that will take you from Patchogue village right into the heart of Chelsea Manhattan

Statement:

Kenneth Ian Husbands works have been displayed throughout the USA. Kenneth’s artwork has appeared in various online/print publications. Kenneth belongs to national art groups such as The Sheboygan Visual Artists and the Plymouth arts center as well as New York groups Such as the South bay arts association the Brookhaven Arts and humanities council and The new millennium modern art group. Kenneth had studied art in NY at a local college before his financial situation made him drop out and become a long shore commercial fisherman. After not painting for 6 years he found the art calling him back. Putting all of his energy back into art he found the concept of letting go of controlling his art  to be appealing, and started experimenting in a aesthetic way to make that happen. The paintings on display are all examples of his “letting go of control” as well as different emotions he puts onto the canvas
