ROGER KAYE

The Kaleidoscope of the Mind
April 24 - May 14, 2015
Reception: Thursday April 30, 2015 6-8 PM

Artist, inventor, and entrepreneur Roger Kaye has taken Verre Eglomise, also known as reverse painting on glass, into the digital age. His designs are created on a computer and transferred onto the glass. He then hand paints his images using sprays and acrylics, embellishing them with materials such as abalone and mother of pearl. He also incorporates copper, gold, and silver leaf as well as other small findings.  From a decorative stand- point, Kaye’s works draw comparisons to cloisonné enamel decoration in their iridescent splendor. He also describes much of his work as a blend of Art Deco and Art Nouveau styles, and these influences are evident in his beautifully conglomerated works. Organic forms from the natural world, including sinuous long- stemmed flowers and animal motifs, are framed within bold curves and geometric ornamentation. "Photographs can't capture the 3D depth of my work which, one sees when viewing in person."

In addition to creating fine art, Kaye is an inventor and songwriter: “I look at anything I do as a form of art,” he says. Kaye describes his inventions as “functional sculpture,” and has experienced success developing sharpening machinery for the beauty, grooming, and medical industries. Born and raised in New York state, Kaye currently lives and works lives in Glens Falls, NY.
