Artwork: Jason Boyd Kinsella’s work is concerned with the constituent parts of the human condition. This brand of hyper-contemporary psychological portraiture aims to deconstruct the personality traits of the sitter, using geometric shapes as building blocks to convey the complexity of human emotion, and bridge the gap between our internal feelings and external appearance.
