  • 4. ISIS KENNEY347-826-8096WWW.HIPHOPFINEART.COMISIS KENNEY ARTIST STATEMENTIsis KenneyIntroduces the Hip Hop Fine Art CollectionThe Re-Birth of the Hip Hop BibleSince I was a child, my mother has been instrumental in my direction towards the art of collage. Prov iding me with her collection ofEssence magazines at the tender age of eight, I created my f irst piece. I was nev er taught collage, but I lov ed using my hands and itwas an easy way to make art. My mother, as an educator, believ ed that children should use their hands in order to learn how tocreate.Growing up, she prov ided me with Legos, coloring books, puzzles and great toy s and projects. My f ather was also an educator, an artteacher, so whenev er we had contests in the house I would especially try to please him. My mother was easy ; she was supportiv e ofme doing any thing constructiv e. My f ather on the other hand was v ery detailed and stern when it came to art. Due to his prof ession,he was constantly critiquing others and ev en though I was his kid, I was no exception. Howev er, his sev erity only pushed me to dobetter and to stick to what I lov ed. Through it all, I just wanted my parents to be able to see my v ision and satisf y my curiosity . Iinquisitiv e by nature.I remember going to relativ es houses as a kid and wanting to know the names and birth dates and see pictures of ev ery one. Therewas a story there that I wanted to put together.I e alway s lov ed telling stories so my collages became a new way f or me to do so.The story of Hip Hop has alway s been of particular interest to me, theref ore I started the Hip Hop Fine Art Collection.Coming f rom Poughkeepsie the only connection to Hip Hop was The Source Magazine, so I became an av id subscriber. When wedidnt hav e money to subscribe, I would go out of my way to get an issue. Af ter a while, I didnt know what to do with my collection.With the magazine and music industry changing, I wanted to bring hip hop to lif e through f ine art. I wanted to prov ide the Re-Birth ofthe Hip Hop Bible.Some of my images hav e come f rom other magazines but this collection in its entirety is inspired by the bible of hip hop itself : TheSource Magazine. Each piece tells of an actual point in history that each artist contributed to the Hip Hop community ; stories of theirdramas and triumphs, which are rarely told or seen in this medium.I hope the Hip Hop Fine Art Collection allows the audience/v iewer to look deeper than the v ideo or the music. I hope the v iewer looksat the ey es,look at the expressions, look at the artist, as a person.It is my pleasure to introduce to you Hip Hop Fine Art.Sincerely, Email: dbkny @y ahoo.com Email: hiphopf ineart@gmail.comIsis Kenney Email: inf o@hiphopf ineart.comThe Female Hip Hop Romare Bearden
