Jeremiah Ketner --Elizabeth Paige Smith

Jeremiah is a Chicago-based visual artist who's work tends to transport its audience out of reality and into a dream-like world that is filled with candied tones and imaginative creatures.

Drawing inspiration from Japanese aesthetics, packaging design, magazine ads and urban grafitti, the dream-like paintings are created with no preliminary drawing; a composition is formed haphazardly and then outlined through the building process of layers. The result is an assemblage of muted tones, non-dimensional forms, flower-like shapes, and charming little creatures navigating through a sort of candy-land world.
