Hello everyone and late yet robust Happy New Year wishes to you all!

Hope all of you in the American North East are enduring this frozen hellscape as well as you can. I walked to the coffee shop today and felt like I was in The Road. But instead of contending with starvation, roving packs of cannibals, and the rapid deterioration of all humanity, I just had a freshly baked chocolate chip muffin and a piping hot americano. It was delightful. Suck it McCarthy!

Also, around 60 barges broke free on the Ohio River and are currently lodged against the Emsworth Locks and Dams right down the street from me. Many of them are loaded with cargo and a good number of them have tipped and submerged. And there’s nothing they can do because it’s insanely cold and everything is frozen and impossible.

If I had one wish, it would be to meet Cormac McCarthy, Werner Herzog, and Terrence Malick at that snowy riverbank at dawn, and we could just gaze at this profound and enormous display of human folly in complete silence. Manmade industrial leviathans churning and fighting against the unrelenting forces of nature in a cacophonous struggle to avoid the inevitable, quiet end. All our grand aspirations succumbing to the oldest of fates and sinking into the cold darkness to lie amongst the countless number of discarded I.C. Light cans on the bed of the Ohio River. Then we all just nod to each other and walk back to our own separate lives…. Then Herzog circles around and meets at the coffee shop for fresh muffins, and he reads the first book of Harry Potter to me aloud in his Herzog voice.


PRINT NEWS!

I’ll be releasing my first print of 2018 this Friday, January 19th, at 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time in the Andy Kehoe Art Shop.

Thanks so much for reading and have a great 2018


The holidays are bearing down on us like 9 blackout drunk Santas driving a semi truck down an icy hill at 210 mph hauling a triple trailer filled to the brim with reindeer steaks and eggnog and they all forgot their prescription eye glasses at the Outback Steakhouse where they each consumed 6 blooming onions a piece. It’s an unstoppable force of horror, merriment, over indulgence, and run-on sentences. So to get into the spirit of the inevitability of it all, I present: CYBER BLACK CAT MONDAY

Starting at midnight Eastern on Monday November 27th, everything and anything in Andy Kehoe Art Shop will be 20% for a week with the code:
CYBERBLACKCAT17
That includes all of the original work posted in my shop. Speaking of, I just added all of the available work from my recent Thinkspace Gallery show, PRISMATIC to my shop. Is that on sale? It most certainly is. How about all of my remaining Jonathan Levine Gallery pieces? You bet it is. Snazzy iridescent Metal prints? Hell yes. Custom framing? TOTALLY. Cure All Phoenix Tear Tonic? Unfortunately, that’s a no. I had a guy, but he was recently mauled to death by a rabid manticore. If anyone has a connection on that, let me know.

All print orders in the US made before December 18th should definitely arrive before Christmas, and international orders should be made before December 8th to be safe. Though I can’t fully guarantee any shipping times on international orders because once it leaves the States, it’s all in Santa’s velvety, white-gloved hands.
Many of my originals will be shipped by their respective galleries, so try to order those a couple weeks in advance.

Thanks for reading and a preemptive & hearty Happy Holidays to you all.
Andy


PRISMATIC OPENING

Hi Everyone!

I got back to Pittsburgh from LA a week ago and had a wonderful time at the PRISMATIC opening at Thinkspace on September 30th. Whew. This show really took it out of me, but I couldn’t be happier with how it all turned out. I’d talk about it more, but as it turns out, I’ve already spent hours writing about it in my recent interview with Sour Harvest. You can read the interview here:

SOUR HARVEST INTERVIEW


I updated my site and added images of all the new works. You can find the gallery here:

And one last announcement. Last Tuesday I had another print release through Tiny Showcase, which is actually a pair of prints. I’ve been trying to figure out a way to release prints of the pieces, Forest Sentinel I & Forest Sentinel II, and Tiny Showcase seemed like the perfect place. They are both formatted to 8″x10″ and part of the proceeds go to The Hispanic Federation for relief efforts in Puerto Rico. $25 each or $45 for the pair.

Happy to announce my upcoming show, PRISMATIC, which opens on September 30th, 2017 at Thinkspace Gallery. This will be my first time exhibiting in the LA area in 5 years, so I’m super excited to be back again. Here’s the official statement for the show from the gallery:

Andy Kehoe’s work is compelling, haunting, and magnetic. He uses the suggestion of narrative to imply a trajectory beyond the image plane. The viewer is left feeling as though they have had a glimpse into a much longer, and more significant vignette. Just as all effective suggestions of narrative leave one feeling the absence of its absolute resolution, we feel a mesmerizing pull to Kehoe’s narrative fragments, and wonder what else lies beneath the surface.

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.
