Stanford Kay

Painting Out Loud

February 17 - March 10, 2024

Opening Reception: Saturday, February 17, 5 - 7 pm

Stanford Kay’s exhibition ‘Painting Out Loud’ is a dialog between unconscious impulses and the desire to create meaning. Kay endeavors to paint intuitively and work without an agenda, maintaining a state of mind where he is present and open until resonant forms and relationships assert themselves in his work.


As he paints, words and phrases that serve as working titles and veritable signposts enter Stanford’s mind and persist throughout a number of paintings. Kay’s critical thinking takes over, and the painting is then steered to where he thinks it needs to go, but he also embraces spontaneity and the unknown, allowing for the artistic journey to occur.
