The New York Times, Sunday, May 5, 1991
PMW Gallery, Craig Kane
by Vivien Raynor

...Craig Kane's oils...[average] about 2 1/2 by 3 1/2 inches. They are cityscapes that were painted in and around Brooklyn, and they hang in phalanxes. One of the most attractive features houses and a bare tree, seen through the louvers of a blind; another is nothing but a pink-and-blue evening sky with a row of street lamps at the bottom that are starting to twinkle.

Sometimes Mr. Kane works even smaller, as in the three images of a blue planet earth, setting over a mud-colored horizon under a black sky, and places the results in cigar boxes. He is a gifted miniaturist who risks- but so far has escaped- preciousness, probably because of his uncute subject matter.

Born in New York City. Lives and works in Manhattan and Queens.

The way I work is playful yet serious. It’s intuitive but pointed. Out of my

working process comes a dialogue, a story being told to me about my life, my

work, my relationships to people close to me, about the place where I live and

the way that I live in that place. I mine history when I work, my personal

history, the history of art...what comes together forms the story of who I am

and what my life is about.
