Richard Kehl

Visual poet, author and provocateur, Richard Kehl, former art professor at University of Washington for 36 years, urges everyone to view the fabric of life with an “innocent eye,” free of the labels and value judgments imposed from the outside. The true qualities of elegance and originality visible in Richard’s Kehlages are not designed to relate messages or personal stories, but rather to ignite the imagination and evoke mystery. Individually compelling objects are made even more so through his attentive orchestration, setting off an endless chain of emotional and visual associations that spark an overflowing of the dream into reality, or reality into the dream. A special “something-in-between” flourishes in the margins beyond what the images depict, and the subliminal impact lingers in the viewers mind long after the show’s end.
