Kim MacConnel is an influential artist in the Pattern and Decoration Movement of the 1970s. Taking cues from Picasso and the so-called “primitivists,” MacConnel has taken the primitive and made it relevant in different dialogues between cultures. MacConnel’s work has been exhibited internationally for over three decades, including recent shows at the Holly Solomon Gallery (NYC), Rosamund Felsen Gallery, and Claremont Graduate University. He is represented by the Rosamund Felsen Gallery.
