Steve Turner is pleased to present Literature, Kevin McNamee-Tweed’s debut solo exhibition in Los Angeles which features over one hundred objects across various media and from different series. There are two groups of paintings, one in glazed ceramic and another which the artist calls his “butterfly” series which consists of rectangular canvases with two pairs of circular forms flanking a vertical line. McNamee-Tweed is also presenting drawings and relief sculptures that resemble shelves as well as found objects and printed ephemera.

Kevin McNamee-Tweed (b. 1984) grew up near Chapel Hill, North Carolina before studying at New York University where he earned a BFA (2008). After living in Austin, Texas for seven years, he moved to Iowa City to enroll in the MFA program at the University of Iowa where he will earn an MFA (2020). He has had solo exhibitions at The Still House Group, New York (2016); Rod Barton, London (2017); Shrine Gallery, New York (2018) and Devening Projects, Chicago (2019). Literature is his first solo exhibition at Steve Turner, Los Angeles. He lives and works in Iowa City.
