Kyle Heinly is an artist who works in paint and mixed media, producing images that explore the limits of figurative painting while expressing a unique abstracted style. The artist’s paintings explore a wide range of subjects in a style that remains impressively cohesive in its wildness.
Kyle’s gallery of originals contains numerous examples of the artist’s style. Browsing through these images, I see the potential influences of cubism, abstraction, surrealism, and expressionism among other historic artistic styles. Even still, Kyle’s painting exist in a thoroughly contemporary realm, channelling the work of illustrators like Joey Feldman, or abstract painters like Noah NJ Bowman.
The artist’s human figures are especially fascinating, in my opinion. I like the way that Kyle reduces these figures down to their barest essentials, giving the viewer a framework for interpreting each image while also allowing plenty of space for individual interpretation and symbolism.
