About this Art

"I enjoy working with ocean themes and I had an itch to paint a whale underwater. This image sat on the backburner in my imagination for a while. I felt sad thinking about it. Eventually I just had to paint it, get it out of my system, kind of like a personal exorcism. I feel it is a strong image, and with my work, I really try to find a balance between the absurd and the sublime."

"The title, Goodbye, is the tail waving farewell to humanity, and humanity to the whale, the natural world. I think it is a reminder of the natural beauty that we are losing every day, as well as a reminder of how hard we have to fight to preserve it."
– Josh Keyes

Josh Keyes
Portland, Oregon
Born in 1969 in Tacoma Washington. Josh Keyes received his BFA in 1992 from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and an MFA in 1998 from Yale University School of Art. He has exhibited his work nationally and internationally and has work in private and public collections. Keyes currently lives and works in Portland Oregon with his wife and artist Lisa Ericson.

"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
