Kenny’s figurative sculptures rely on the fusion of classical and contemporary references. By tackling subjects as different as Monica Lewinsky, Osama bin Laden or youth from today, Hunter’s concerns are political but also embraces the universality of human emotions through history and across nations.
In 1987, Kenny received a BA with Honors in Fine Art, Sculpture from the Glasgow School of Art (Scotland). He has exhibited extensively both in Scotland and internationally. His work is featured in major collections such as the Gallery of Modern Art and the Scottish National Portrait Gallery. Recent shows include “Beautiful Productions” at the Whitechapel Gallery, London (2001), “Sanctuary” at the Glasgow Gallery of Modern Art (2003) and a solo show at Conner Contemporary Art Gallery, Washington D.C (Fall 2004).
Kenny’s residency at Location One is supported by the James McBey Fellowship, administered by Aberdeen City Council.
