The artwork is exploring contemporary experience in the light of history, in the paradoxical space between the transcendent and the mundane. The hope is to find moments where the infinite bonds with the common in the midst of uncertain circumstances and so that they all might expand, disorient, and illuminate each other.
The works begin in conversations with members of Kinnear's local community. These lead to an event where the model is able to embody their most influential stories. The elements of portraiture and storytelling are then woven with classical media techniques to produce a personal, contemporary re-imaging of age-old narratives.
