Purchase Float Limited Edition Archival Pigment Prints on 290gsm Moab Fine Art Paper by Josh Keyes Graffiti Street Artist Modern Pop Art.
"The conception of both paintings rattled inside my mind for a few months before the image gelled. I spent some time watching footage of NASA missions and looking up at the stars at night, just thinking what if, and maybe. I was stuck in indecision for a long time about whether or not to make these paintings. The setting in space was so foreign to my previous work. I worked on some other paintings, but the idea of deep infinite space kept creeping through my thoughts. I guess the turning point was just to dive in and see what would happen. I was aware of Jeremy Geddes beautiful astronaut paintings and wanted to find my own voice for working with this subject matter. I think they are successful in that I accomplished what I set out to express. I would enjoy revisiting this theme in the future. I think the imagery is interesting and wacky, and when I look at the print, it transports me someplace far, far away. I like art that leaves me slightly confused and with unanswered questions. If you need another reason, the paper and printing quality are top-notch." - Josh Keyes
Josh Keyes exists equally in the world of surrealism and realism. No matter how contradictory this may seem, his art manages to balance physiological accuracy and extreme photorealism with an eco-surrealistic scenery and interactions. The theoretical context of his work is connected to mythological and folklore themes –especially the legends and stories of Native Americans- and the imagery that exists between dreams and nightmares in order to express profound existential anxiety and uncertainty.
