Kevin Drager is a Canadian Dutch/ German abstract painter. He has studied at 5 Universities and Art Colleges internationally and exhibited in Canada. His work explores surface, light and color.
Kevin Drager paints to extend, explore, abstract, engage the project of Early and Mid- Modernism - play, freedom, experimentation, art for art sake, autonomous art, and Romanticism. Drager's work links with Nature's beauty, Gestalt, poetry, Zen, and objectness. His work incorporates the exploration of "materiality" and 'form'. Ideas and concepts in philosophy, such as Hegel's dialectic of universality, and Formalism - Clement Greenburg- line, color, texture, mark, composition, process, are layers in his work..
