Current artwork is exploring the myths of manufactured humans, ie: the Golem, Pinocchio, & Frankenstien, as a vehicle to explore current questions about the natural, the synthetic, and how they relate to place. In addition to stream of consciousness play with metaphor. Past work involved collaborative experiments in narrative portraiture.
The works are developed from collaborative brainstorming sessions with members of Kinnear's community. Creatures & modeling sessions are developed from this rich bed of dialog, and fused with aesthetic inspirations from classical art histories of both Europe and Asia.
