Preview: Ben Kehoe and Jon MacNair at Antler Gallery

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

Both artists with an flare for narrative, Ben Kehoe and Jon MacNair have a two side-by-side solo shows coming up at Portland’s Antler Gallery: MacNair’s “Traversing the Emotional Landscape” and Kehoe’s “Shadows in The Field of Science.” MacNair recently relocated to Portland from Michigan a year and a half ago and has been amid a prolific period ever since. Rendered with India ink, his monochromatic works take the viewer into a haunted, albeit quirky, forest populated by surreal characters. Based in Pittsburgh, PA, Kehoe (brother of artist Andy Kehoe) has returned from a hiatus from the art world with a series of richly-colored and patterned paintings filled with strange mysticism and references to American folklore. Take a look at some of the work in both shows below.
