John Kindness – The Odyssey

Kindness describes himself as an “artist, currently completing a visual version of Homer’s Odyssey”. He enjoys working with objects which have been through “the patina of usage” and uses traditional methods such as mosaic and fresco painting to explore contemporary themes and defy conventional notions of the fine art object – the hazards of Scylla and Charybdis are engraved onto a toilet seat, Odysseus’s teenage son listens to albums by ‘The Sirens’ and ‘The Gorgons’. In his mimicking of the visual styles of Ancient Greek vase-painting, he suggests that the residues of contemporary life will be the artefacts of the future.
