Peter Kephart captures transcendental moments on vulnerable sheets of paper, in a process that is equal parts art and alchemy. Join Zenith for a solo exhibit, celebrating “Fire Paintings” of Kephart – mixed media works that are very personal, and yet, surprisingly universal.
To quote 20th Century poet Zae Black and her poem Hidden Fire: “There has always been a burning fire and there always will be one. You cannot find the hidden fire in your heart (but) You can never get rid of a fire that can’t be put out.” For Peter Kephart, the hidden fire is the fire within, the creative flame that sparks the imagination and burns brightly even when unseen. By coupling his searing drive for creativity with the element of fire manifest, and combining these with the fundamental forces of water, earth, and wind, Peter Kephart creates singular and unprecedented artworks of astonishing natural beauty and emotive power.
