Artist Statement:


I believe in the portrayal of energy and motion. Every image and stroke becomes a thought to be shared. Each event is spontaneous while trying to organize the chaos.


The newest body of work the “Mountain Energies”

I have always wanted to paint mountains in a way the reflects the way they make me feel. At times I am throwing gallons of paint at the canvas, by using this technique the visual appeal becomes more fluid and visceral.


Kivie's work has been featured in national and international publications and is in collectors homes throughout the world. He is represented by RARE Gallery in Jackson Hole.
