"The imagery in the paintings are figments of my imagination – manifestations of subconscious articulations of shape and form. The figments are born in the matrix of the sketchbook, in which masses of chaotic scribbles are alchemically transmuted into articulable forms. In a series of preparatory studies, they then go through a sort of adolescent phase – a fuller development of line, form, value and color. The paintings themselves represent their final maturation – completed, but, like all living things, ripe with potential for further growth and change, which ultimately takes place in the mind of the viewer." - Ketelhut

The otherworldly subject matter of his imaginative, colorful paintings is largely self-generated and speaks to unconscious longings and motivations. In addition to his formal education, Ketelhut is self-taught, which he considers to be just as important. His work has been seen in several solo exhibitions as well as numerous group shows both locally and nationally. His work is included in both national and international private collections.
The series invites the viewer to bring his or her own perceptions to each piece and, with open sensibilities, allow the imagery to let them experience their own figmented reality.
