The Paintings of Andy Kehoe

Andy Kehoe's paintings portray the frightening and the uncertain as mundane. This is something you can appreciate when you look at the headlines each morning.

The palettes are monochromatic and the monsters look bored with their evil. It's quite an interesting juxtaposition.

The style and subject matter remind me of Where the Wild Things Are. Just darker and more grown-up.

The pieces on the site that had listed prices were under $1000. That seems like a good deal for something original and thought provoking.

Shown here:

"Shameful Deed Falls Silent," (left) sold.
"Shelter of Beauty," (right) sold.
"Myth Rises from the Dead Beast," (below) $900.
