Andy Kehoe interviewed by Erratic Phenomena

The World Unseen and Those In Between - 01

One of our favorite people and favorite writers just did a very in-depth interview with Portland-based artist Andy Kehoe whose upcoming solo show, The World Unseen and Those In Between, is coming up this December at Thinkspace.

The World Unseen and Those In Between is a show about the unseen spirit world and invisible forces that exist all around. It’s been fun creating an even stranger and more mysterious world around my already pretty strange world. I’ve been playing around with ghosts and spirits in previous works, so it’s been great dedicating a whole show to it.” – Andy Kehoe
