Kendal Hanna At VOLTA NY
Kendal Hanna will be featured at this year’s VOLTA NY art fair. Kendal was born in Nassau, Bahamas, in 1936 and has been a prolific abstract artist most of his life.
When I work there is no goal, only an attempt to stay focus and curious. Curiosity is the thing that pushes you… especially at my age. Real curiosity in ideas, material, form and the environment, be it through drawing, sculpture or painting, and channeling that effort into hard work is the awesome responsibility and joy of an artist.
VOLTA NY is an invitational fair of solo-artist projects and is the American incarnation of the original VOLTA show, which was founded in Basel in 2005. VOLTA NY was conceived in 2008 as a focused, curated, boutique event that is a place for discovery. The exhibition showcases relevant contemporary art positions regardless of the artist’s or gallery’s age. By refocusing on artists through solo projects, VOLTA NY promotes a deep exploration of the work of its selected participants.
