Jeff Vincent Show Offers Kreepy Sale

Our favorite kreepy local is hosting an exhibition and silent auction
featuring a new medium of work than we’ve formerly seen. Jeffrey
Vincent of Kreepy Doll Factory fame (see video below) will be selling acrylic paintings,
large and small, at The Vault on Friday July 16th at 6 pm.

art picture show.jpgThe auction is a two part benefit says Jeffrey, “I am attending the
Hoffberger School of Painting at MICA in Baltimore, Maryland in
August. I will be enrolled in the masters program at this institute. The
money from the auction will go towards my tuition and living expenses
while attending this program. Secondly, I haven’t exhibited in Buffalo
in over a year and I have created over forty new paintings since last
October. I wish to give my friends and fans of my work the opportunity
to purchase some of my new work at an affordable price before I have to
leave town. I like the idea of leaving little pieces of myself here. The
show will also function as a going away party where I can say farewell
to many faces.”

In a similar fashion to his whimsical and somewhat sinister dolls, his
primary focus when painting is contemporary folklore and modern visual
narratives. The colors and landscapes are brightly colored planes of
texture but some of the people depicted have a grimace or smirk–sometimes they lack any facial distinction at all. Jeffrey’s work has hints of a Ben Shahn influence; a study of polemic themes that do not directly
call out any specific guilty parties, but instead open the topic for
discussion. These new works are a rejuvenation of Vincent’s creativity
and allow us (gulp) more insight as to what exactly goes on inside of
his head. Jeffrey states that his inspiration comes from the studio
space he rents and the creatives he surrounds himself with. “All of this
new work was made possible by Brian Wantuch of ‘Wasteland Studios‘ at 700 Main. I rent a studio from
Brian and my experience over the last year at 700 Main has been an
excellent and inspiring experience.”

*This is a cash auction, credit will not be accepted, checks will be
considered.
