"The conception of both paintings rattled inside my mind for a few months before the image gelled. I spent some time watching footage of NASA missions and looking up at the stars at night, just thinking what if, and maybe.

I was stuck in indecision for a long time whether or not to make these paintings. The setting in space was so foreign to my previous work. I worked on some other paintings, but the idea of deep infinite space kept creeping through my thoughts. I guess the turning point was just to dive in and see what would happen. I was aware of Jeremy Geddes beautiful astronaut paintings, and wanted to find my own voice for working with this subject matter.

I think they are successful in that I accomplished what I set out to express. I would enjoy revisiting this theme in the future. I think the imagery is interesting and wacky, and when I look at the print, it transports me someplace far, far away. I like art that leaves me slightly confused and with unanswered questions. If you need another reason, the paper and printing quality are top notch." - Josh Keyes

"The animals emerge from the pages of my sketchbook sometimes as singular studies occupying a diagrammatic space, while others wander through dystopian landscapes like specimens or dioramas from a mysterious museum of natural history. I build each painting like a collage, with multiple references. Sometimes I use modeling clay to sculpt a maquette of an animal head or other object to help see how light or shadows fall over a form. The imagery that fascinates me is associated with mythology and folklore, specifically the legends and stories that seem to take place in the space between dreams and nightmares. For me this area contains the strongest psychological relationship to our present ecological situation and gives voice to the underlying existential anxiety and uncertainty many people have about the future." - Josh Keyes
