Ken Kiff: Young Gallery Salisbury

The Young Gallery’s exhibition Ken Kiff (1935 – 2001): Paintings-Prints-Drawings provides viewers with the opportunity to re-evaluate the work of Ken Kiff, who produced a much-admired body of work, invoking fantasy and myth in exploring the realities of humanity.

Humans or animals take centre-stage in barely outlined landscapes, with violations of scale and perspective which had echoes of the work of his favourite painter, Chagall, and paid homage to the style and concision of Chinese landscape painting which he so admired. Kiff would stay true to his particular vision throughout his life. The show explores the wide range of media Kiff used to express a highly personal combination of figurative and abstract elements to depict the human condition.
