About Kendra


Kendra Binney was raised in a small mountain town with no shoe stores. Most of her time was spent barefoot treading through the miniscule world of spiders, snakes and all things hiding in the grass. She transfers this closeness with the small and obscure into her paintings. Through scenes of dripping landscapes and insecure, vulnerable characters, she illustrates a world draped in memories, remorse, and fragile realities. Seen through pastel washes and shiny candy coatings of resins, her works evoke both nostalgia and contempt. They are at once gentle and cruel, sweet and unsettling.

Her work is so emotive and lush. She is one of the original artists who was there at the beginning of the pop surrealism movement. She deserves to be here.

Kendra is a Portland original. Her work captures the feel of a Portland wet winter/spring. Full of promise, wistful, bitter sweet.
