Layaway Days: Art collecting on a Budget
Josh Keyes latest show 'Implosion' opens tonight at Thinkspace Gallery. All of the original works have sold, however, a limited edition print will be available tonight, prior to the opening. 'Spray' will be available in an edition of 175 and will cost $250. Josh consistently discusses the environment and issues affecting our planet.
Taken from the press release,
"Keyes' unique type of "eco-surrealism" offers a cautionary swan song. In an ostensibly not so distant future, the natural world is caught in a fascinating, albeit tragically irrevocable, death spasm. Fallen, and taxed well beyond our current state of environmental depletion, this world is siphoned, its ecological exhaustion has led to inversion, dislocation, chaos, contradiction, and disjuncture. Water levels have surged, habitats are destroyed, unlikely species commingle, humans are gone, and the world has unraveled to a state of absurd disorder and irremediable loss."
All remaining prints will be sold online on Wednesday. Details will be released on Tuesday. This will sell out immediately, so be sure to sign up for the galleries mailing list.
This is yet another impressive release from the Portland-based artist.
Prints will be available here:
Art isn't purchased at big-box stores. This blog is for collectors like me, who collect on a budget.
