While Kenya’s work is playful in its subject matter and technique, this playfulness belies an underlying fervor for the formal perfection of the grid. Upon the fundamental matrix that structures each of his paintings and drawings, Kenya is able realize surprisingly convincing volumes with the utmost economy of line. His preoccupation with a rigorously coordinated framework of foods and desserts is an ongoing dance of playful rendering with a strict, personal set of visual rules. Kenya’s work has been the subject of an exhibition at the flagship J Crew store on Madison Avenue, and the work has since become part of J Crew’s corporate collection. Kenya’s work also figures prominently in the collection of The Museum of Everything in London as well many private collections throughout the United States.
