We’re incredibly excited to be showing Andy Kehoe’s latest body of work PRISMATIC. The exhibition will be the first LA show from Kehoe in the last five years. Here are some of his thoughts on the postcard piece, Together in the Maelstrom pulled from his blog,
“The postcard image is the first piece I finished for the show called, Together in the Maelstrom. I’ve been wanting to make a spiritual followup to my piece, Together at the Threshold, for a while now. I made Together at the Threshold for my wife, Ash, for our engagement and it symbolized us at the precipice of our future journey together. This year, on August 25th, we celebrated our 5 year anniversary so it seemed like a fitting time to make the follow-up. We’ve been through a lot together in these past 5 years so I wanted to convey the beauty of love and partnership, but also capture the frightening largeness of it. Giving yourself completely to another person, trusting in them, and resigning yourself to all the vulnerabilities that entail, is at once beautiful, comforting, fearsome, and a multitude of other emotions I can’t begin to adequately express in words. Then externally, the world around us is both a grand and dreadful place, so having someone to share the experience is all the more comforting, exciting, and gratifying. But it also brings an extra level of fear and anxiety knowing that all the horrible things in life can affect the person you love and none of it is in your control. All you can do is take their hand and witness it together in all its awe and horror.”
PRISMATIC opens this Saturday, September 30th, for more information on the exhibition please visit the Thinkspace Gallery website.
