Donald Kilpatrick III Exhibit Opens in New York
Sing Down the Moon explores Kilpatrick’s use of allegory in pursuit of engaging narratives that transport the viewer to imaginary epochs. Books and birds, a needle and thread, axes and snakes are some of the many symbols used to represent humanity’s innate desire to cultivate, serve, and command nature.
These visual poems draw from the artist’s personal archive, which include, printed matter, title pages from books and sketchbooks.
Kilpatrick earned has an M.A. from Syracuse University in 2006. He moved to Detroit in 2007 to begin his career at the College for Creative Studies where is a professor of traditional and digital illustration of which he has been the department chair since 2010.
His work has been featured in publications such as Fortune, the L.A. Times, and the Wall Street Journal. His paintings have been exhibited in Detroit, New York, Philadelphia, Los Angeles and Miami.
