Donn Kidd lives in Wisconsin where he works as a barge operator on county lakes. Donn has been an Air Force brat, a toy designer, a fusion energy research mechanic and a data jockey studying the epidemiology of aging and the senses.
Donn’s artwork provides continuity and direction to his experience. His paintings playfully attach moments to moments and ideas to objects. These objects though entangled with cognitive and perceptual amusements remain saturated with a retinal attention to the tangible.
The work is of three types.
Science Candy: These navigational confections chart those currents, backwaters and gravity wells which submerge and transport us.
The Magic Show: Suspends us between incomprehensible forces and a facade.
Character[istic]s: Are fun, overly cooperative archetypes.
