A life long collector, Jerry Kunkel is well known for his paintings loaded with images that trigger our cultural memory and collective consciousness, all mined from his collections. He considers the process of collecting transformative and, lucky for us, his paintings make that transformation visible for us to see.

When Kunkel moved his studio from Colorado to Lawrence, Kansas, he was faced quite literally with unpacking his life. This began a long process of attempting to unpack imagery, unravel it, unlayer it, isolate it, and spread it out. Resonating with references to pop culture, everyday activities, the unexplained curious twist, the symbolic and the everyday, Kunkel’s paintings spread out imagery, pattern, and text luxuriously revealing unexpected stories intertwined with nuance and meaning.
