Kilmer, best known as an actor, uses painting to investigate the nature of Icons and to explore issues of celebrity, identity, reproduction, and American mythic archetypes.

Kilmer uses self-referential archetypes he played as an actor in his exploration of iconography and the American Myth. His decision to use stencils parallel the nature of these mythic characters in the sense that both colored by the human that is bringing them to life.

Kilmer’s recent abstract work will also on display. Created in the spirit of Russian icons, painting on metal instead of wood, they are windows pulling the viewer into another world.

Lastly, for the first time publicly on display, you will see his largest works (82x48in) comprised of laser-cut metal panels of the word “GOD”. Ultimately, naming God as the ultimate icon and encouraging the viewer to examine their relationship with the word itself.
