To put it simply Kenor likes to paint frequencies. Blending his abstractions with geometric patterns he methodically dissects and visually he will often recreates the sonic frequencies vibrating from his stereo, as well as the frequencies of movement. Pulled from his recent exhibition Polyrythmic Beats, the idea behind his latest release Chain Reaction is to paint the accelerations of two bodies. Read on to see photos from Kenor’s recent mural and more with as he discusses his latest release Chain Reaction…
1xRun: Tell us a little bit about this piece, was it created solely for this release?
Kenor: I did this piece in January of 2015 using spray paint on canvas and it took me about one months to complete. This canvas is inspired by a large mural in Barcelona.
1xRun: Was this piece part of a recent theme or show that you had?
Kenor: This canvas was in my last solo-show in Paris, Polyrythmic Beats. I found myself there in the middle of Ronda del Alt in Barcelona with traffic all around me, flashing by beside me. I chose to make two shapes as a initial concept, one on the right and another on the left, and then I started creating from the straight lines. I tried to unite them all to give more velocity to the two initial forms.
With the work from this exhibition I’ve merged all the styles that I have developed over the last 10 years: geometry, abstract, deconstruction, dimension and movement. For this concept it has been very important building with points, creating infinite points from a continuous and indefinite succession that defragments the line on the plane into multiple fragments in a single dimension. A song is formed by a set of rhythms. I paint rhythms, deconstruct and construct them, creating a new audio visual piece of work. Transforming each rhythm into my different pictorial language.
1xRun: How long did this piece take and what materials were used?
Kenor: This piece was made using spray and acrylic paint on canvas. It took one month from start to finish. It was a bit of action and reaction at the time.
1xRun: Tell us a bit about your process and how the idea and execution came about for this piece?
Kenor: The idea is to paint the accelerations of two bodies. I chose to make two shapes as an initial concept, one on the right and another on the left, and then I started creating from the straight lines. I tried to unite them all to give more velocity to the two initial forms.
1xRun: What do you feel is unique about this piece?
Kenor: It is movement, human acceleration.
1xRun: Describe this piece in one gut reaction word.
