Coming this Friday to myplasticheart is a solo show from Chicago-based artist Jeremiah Ketner. “Ideal World” is Ketner’s second solo show at the store. The theme, as you can guess from the title, is showing Ketner’s vision of beauty and tranquility.
Ideal World is the continuation of a theme I have been exploring for several years now. I wanted to create a place of luxury for the mind. A place where everything is tranquil and all forms of life can coexist without any reference to the past or future. This timeless notion allows sprites to carelessly play while fairy like forms act as guides through this world. I’m inspired and amazed by the natural beauty of our world. Flowers, vines, gardens, oceans, sea life, animals, insects and so on. It’s endless, and the complexity of nature pushes me to explore further and reflect in my own way.
There will be a reception on August 9, 2013, at myplasticheart from 6PM to 9PM. Ketner will be at attendance as well. The exhibit will run until September 8, 2013
