Josh Keyes

Currently one of my favorite artists is a Tacoma based painter Josh Keyes.  Though I admire all of his work, I have decided if given the choice to have one of his paintings I would choose the following image titled:  "Sleeping #1".

The work of Keyes draws upon the illustrative style of scientific text books to dissect and isolate animals within fragments of their environments. 

In a post-apocalyptic  narrative he depicts animals in a setting physically void of humans,  save the remnant debris of their civilization.
