Home > House: Works by Kevin Mitchell

June 9July 30

Kevin Mitchell

In Home > House, Kevin Mitchell examines the idea of the home as a place of retreat. This

concept of the home providing structure, strength, and support while the outside

world becomes unpredictable and hostile is at the center of work. The home as a

haven is especially for those whose community is often viewed anomalistic and

peripheral by mainstream society. He uses a variety of media to explore color,

texture, and form as they relate to the ideas of impermanence and chaos, safety

and sanity, exclusion and inclusion.

Kevin Mitchell is a native of Florence, Alabama, but moved to Memphis in 1991

where he works still as an artist, teacher, and sufferer of the Memphis heat. He

has had the pleasure of working in the fields of Graphic Design and Advertising

while also enjoying a very busy studio practice. As of recent, he can most likely

be found enjoying his studio, upcycling found furniture, or constructing art. Also,

he derives much satisfaction from being a mentor to his students as Creative

Director for Memphis College of Art’s External Partnerships and Creative in

Residence.
