ARTIST BIOGRAPHY

J. Kevin Foltz is a wanderer. He has worked for thirty years as a traveling photographer with a large variety of clients ranging from airline magazines, resorts, inns, and restaurants to Western Union and the Sony Corporation. 

Recently relocated to Charleston S.C. from Miami, Kevin continues to work on travel and culinary projects for the custom publishing industry throughout the Americas and the Caribbean. Although still involved in photography works, he now devotes much of his time to making art in many new mediums. Kevin considers himself to be a folk artist, encountering his muse when roaming. 

In his work he allows imagery recorded on the film plane to become a platform from which he dives into subjective interpretations of moments in time. He believes that many artists and art critics gabble on about physcologically “deep” values in art, when no discussion in necessary. He states that the meaning of all artwork is dependent on the sophistication and objectivity of the viewer, and not on contemplations of educators and elitist pedagogues. Foltz says that as long as the art is made with the intention of honest and unique self-expression it is worthy of reflection.

"My first love is the tradition of black and white film photography. In my artworks, I allow imagery recorded on the film plane to become a platform from which I dive into a personal subjective interpretations of a moment in time. I believe that many times artists and art critics gabble on about psychologically "deep" values in art, when no discussion is necessary. The meaning of all artwork is dependent on the sophistication and objectivity of the viewer, and not on the contemplations of educators and elitist pedagogues. I understand that when one makes art with the intention of honest, unique self-expression, the result will be worthy of reflection no matter how basic or sophisticated the means of realization."  J.
