2008, birch plywood, Dimensions variable, NFS

“My work focuses heavily on form, construction, and the preservation of raw materials. In my experimental, mad scientific-state I treat each piece with a simple system; exploration, extrapolation, transformation. Host essentially is the parasitic transformation of plywood that feeds off of harsh living conditions. Suffocated by white walls, bright lights, and its current glass chamber, Host remarkably remains resilient in this introduced environment.”

Kyle earned his BFA from MECA in 2006. His work has been included in shows around Maine – CMCA Biennial (2008), USM, and UNE – and in New York and Tennessee. Kyle is currently the Visual Arts Technician at Bowdoin College.
