– Kevin Scace

INSIDE OUT, showcases the work of Kevin Scace, which he created while taking part in an arts program run by the Berkshires County Jail. With no prior training, a ballpen, some paper, and a very good memory, Scace has created a series of naive and complex illustrations of what he remembered of his life on the outside, while being confined inside the walls of the county jail. His work is emotional, intimate, endearing. With a clever use of space and perspectives, he is able to fit complex memories within the limited confines of a sheet of paper.
