Kenneth Wayne Bushnell (born 1933) is an American visual artist, who was born in Los Angeles. He earned a ba from the university of California, Los Angeles in 1958, and then moved to Hawaii, where he received an mfa from the university of Hawai in 1961. He taught painting at the university of Hawai " Iat m'noa from 1961 to 1981, and was appointed chairman of the art department in 1991.
He is now a professor emeritus, living in Honolulu. Bushnell is best known for his geometric abstract paintings, although his work also includes sculpture, light sculptures, wall reliefs, films, multimedia theater and environmental designs. His acrylic painting on cotton from 1982, double square series no. 6 Is in the collection of the honolulu museum of art. It is typical of his geometric abstract paintings. "a two-person exhibition" of the work of one artist? The subtitle might be confusing but what's clear is that kenneth bushnell has a sense of humor. After spending more than 50 years in the art and academic world, it's refreshing to note he doesn't take himself too seriously. "point-counterpoint" is a collection of works in which bushnell exposes his androgyny (hence the "two-person exhibit") in a colorful feminine and masculine visual conversation. The gallery is divided into two separate bodies of work; the recent, linear, geometric abstract screen-prints, from his ongoing euclidean dream series, on the right, and his large botanical floral stone lithograph series from the 1980s on the left.
