Out of the Darkness: Taming violence through painted story

I’m working on something new. 

But it reminds me of my ongoing, illustrative, fine art series, Out of the Darkness. 

The Coming of Man

The series explores the taming of violence through global mythology. We are living in the safest times our species has ever known and we strive to do more. These tales of woe are, in many ways, tales of what we have overcome.

The Birth of Creation

Each piece in the series is watercolor and ink on 140lb paper, 18×24 inches. The first five pieces won second place at South Bay Contemporary’s ‘All Things Condidered’ exhibition, 2014, curated by Scott Canty, formerly the director of the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery at Barnsdall Art Park. 

K Ryan Henisey is a Los Angeles area artist. His watercolor and mix media works explore the human experience.
