Additional Information

Kinley didn’t label his work as ‘abstract’, and actively sought to create recognisable objects and figures in his work, describing it instead as ‘translating experience (largely but not exclusively of a visual kind) into paint... I begin with a clear idea of what I intend to paint, but in trying to realize this idea in paint it may be necessary to change the image quite a lot.'
