Neil Kienitz fervently believes that his work, and the work of all artists, should reflect his or her beliefs, values, ideals and concepts of beauty.... that art ideally should relate more to the spirit than to the eye. Integrity must be the cornerstone of our work. Further more, good artwork must be competent. That is, it must embody the highest standards of technique, composition and design. When any of these areas suffer, a wall is built between the viewer and the work, excluding all possibility of any meaningful communication. When they are done well, however, the viewer is invited into the artist's world and is impacted by a caring attitude. An artist must really care.
It is this spirit that Neil brings to his new work being shown for the first time ever in this exhibit titled "WINDSWEPT". It is the next evolution of his iconic style that he has developed over the course of his career as an artist. A career that is filled with more than 100 national and regional awards, Corporate and private commissions including Fox Head Oil Co., International Port of Indiana, South Shore Railroad Posters and many many more. His work is in collections around the world and he and has been featured in hundreds of magazines and newspapers.
His greatest desire for his work and his life is that they will bring glory to the God of his creation and salvation.
