“Banana 55” Artist: Kyle Stockford, Boston

Description: 36” x 29” paining, My paintings are a projection of what I believe are a perfectly balanced arrangement of forms, a cohesive map of my mind.

Artist Statement: I was removed from Marshfield high school five years ago and placed in a school for students who have social/emotional challenges that complicate their learning. My parents always told me I was going to college. I really didn’t think it was a possibility; it just felt like my brain didn’t work. My mom and I were told that I have a slow processing speed; I thought it meant I was stupid. My first quarter at Granite Academy I was introduced to the art teacher, Marissa Nadler, and that’s when things started to change. Marissa made me realize that I had an outstanding artistic ability. She pushed me; that summer I was accepted to the Massachusetts College of Art and Design Summer Studios Program, and I was hooked. In the next year, I was accepted to five colleges across the United States. Massachusetts College of Art and Design just felt right; it has been my home for over three years now. Since I started at MassArt I have been in 13 off campus group exhibitions, one magazine, and the recipient of the Gamblin Paint Award.

About the Artist: Kyle Stockford is an American painter living and working in Boston Massachusetts. Stockford uses an array of tools and materials to form semi-transparent layers of different types of mark-making. This year Kyle Stockford received the Gamblin Paint Award from Robert Gamblin of Gamblin Paints.
