'Like S. Neil Fujita’s cover for the landmark jazz album Time Out, James Kennedy’s art incorporates semi-abstract forms to express something that’s entirely intangible. Kennedy’s work is less colorful than Fujita’s, but it captures the same impromptu, playful spirit that Fujita’s art (and pianist Dave Brubeck) brought to Time Out. In “James Kennedy: thought forms,” layers of vertical and horizontal planes — almost like architectural circuitry — overlap and cascade across canvasses. The result is a mind walk of artful dimensions.'
