Seattle, WA - Treason Gallery is pleased to announce its January solo exhibition John Keatley: UNIFORM. Opening reception will be held on Thursday, January 5th from 6pm-9pm during the First Thursday Art Walk in Pioneer Square.
Keatley known to many for his iconic celebrity portraits, brings his unique identifiable style to the world of fine art in his first ever solo exhibition at Treason Gallery. Keatley’s most recent body of work, titled “Uniform” consists of photographic portraits of subjects painted as green army men. Using ordinary people as his focal point, and replicating the aesthetic of the timeless toy, UNIFORM carries a heavy narrative in Keatley’s familiar whimsical style. Each subject is presented as an individual while simultaneously shedding light on the concept of a being part of one unidentifiable unit. Viewers are sure to be captivated by the overwhelming personality and uniqueness of each subject, while questioning the human condition in the modern world.
Keatley encourages all who come into contact with UNIFORM to discuss the correla-tion between emotional detachments from members of the military and the effects of war and everyday Americans. UNIFORM seeks to open the dialogue on the loss of reverence for those who fight bravely for our country, shedding light on the humanity and individualism of those who have lost their lives in the battles of the past.
Join us at the opening reception on Thursday, January 5th from 6pm-9pm at TREASON Gallery located in Pioneer Square, 319 3RD AVE S, Seattle, WA 98104. More info available: www.TREASONGALLERY.com
