Eunice emerged onto the NYC dance scene as a choreographer in 2003. Her artistry quickly took flight and has lead to features on Fox 5, CBS News, ABC 7 and highlights in publications such as The Daily News, the NY Times, and in Sports Illustrated. Her love for art, dance, and music has continued to soar, recently becoming a resident DJ for New York City's popular women’s retailer, C. Wonder, in addition to holding a position as an art director for a major advertising agency. Returning back to her roots in art, Eunice launched a kick-starter project in July 2012, which since has become fully funded by 137 backers in early September 2012.
On September 8, 2012, after promising to give her supporters a flawless solo exhibition, she was devastatingly displaced for over a month by Hurricane Sandy. Unsure if she could finish her artwork in time, she took extreme measures to complete the pieces. Working in her apartment without heat and minimal hours of daylight, Eunice’s unwavering perseverance prevailed. She documented the development of her kick-starter art project www.vimeo.com/54030834 while speaking candidly, and from the heart, on being displaced. “It was a challenging situation but I was fortunate that I had a home and workspace that I would eventually be able to return to. ” Artist Eunice Kindred.
Part I of Soundtracks: Freestyle will exclusively showcase a new body of work, presenting her supporters, media, celebrities, and art enthusiasts with a collaboration of painting, music, and dance. The Soundtracks: Freestyle solo exhibition will feature 30 pieces and take you on a journey through visual expression of music and choreographed movement utilizing paint as the medium. Through each piece, Eunice's interpretation of song will be very personal and entirely captivating - drawing upon anticipated beats, these songs will evoke memories but will ultimately be constrained by the length of the track.
Rogue Gallery, located next to the Highline, the glamorous white gallery space located in the prestigious West Chelsea Building is one of Chelsea's leading venues for art openings. Eunice will provide a unique art and cultural experience to guests with a live DJ, complimentary wine, hors d’oeuvres, a special performance piece by Eunice Kindred herself and gift bags provided by participating sponsors.
