Kevin Tobin

Kevin Tobin's paintings examine how bats are frequently used as symbols of benevolent and malevolent forces in fiction and religion. The artist often employs hollow core doors as painting substrates for his compositions; likewise, the artist uses teeth x-rays as a jumping-off point for painterly experimentations. Tobin’s paintings explore the most primal aspects of the human body—as well as how culture both connects and separates our species from the animal kingdom.
