The Artist's Eye
About this lecture: Inspired by fantasy drawings as a young child, Kincaid began his career in photography in pursuit of capturing alternate realities. He has since received critical acclaim for his work, which digitally combines photography and painting in order to transform scenes of nature into fantastical, yet realistic, realms. His work is found in many corporate and museum collections across the country, including the Dallas Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, the San Antonio Museum of Art, the U.S. State Department, and Neiman Marcus. He has participated in over 100 individual and group exhibitions around the world. Kincaid received his B.A. in Fine Art at Texas Tech University in 1988 and did his graduate work at the University of Kentucky. He will discuss his own artwork in relation to paintings in the Kimbell collection, including Ruisdael's Rough Sea at a Jetty.
About this lecture series: What does the art of the past mean to the artist of the present? In this ongoing program, moderated by Kimbell staff, artists and architects discuss works in the Museum’s collection, share the special insights of the practicing professional, and relate older art to contemporary artistic concerns, including their own.
