Ourtt Geunk

Joseph F. Keppler at Zeitgeist September 2014

Joseph F. Keppler is having a show of his sculpture at Zeitgeist (171 S. Jackson Street) in Seattle. The show is called Ourtt Geunk and is for the month of September.

Opening reception Friday, September 5, 6-8 pm.

Joseph F. Keppler is a steel sculptor and arts writer who lives in West Seattle. His home and garden are an art gallery-in-process. His welding studio is in Ballard. He believes philosophy and critical thinking are crucial for contemporary artists developing our future art history. His work recognizes visual and verbal arts’ importance as culture and that culture is what is least understood and most devitalized by power and its distributive bureaucracies. The artist’s patient mind is what lasts in art.

The Apryl Miller Interview at E·ratio has been viewed five-hundred times!

Thank you, Apryl Miller!

“The majority of my expressions revolve around working through emotional states or situations. My themes are silence, tears, family relationships, difficult loves and how we treat each other as people. All of this is placed under the umbrella of how we are universally imperfect. Other artists may focus on the environment, etc., but mine is all about feelings and relationships.”

 “My titles can be very much like stories, like any sort of writing, but I love to do it and especially love it when the title arrives of its own volition. ‘Sculpture Masquerading as Furniture’ arrived in that way. Initially I was trying to market them as furniture pieces, but after a time I realized they transcend furniture.”

 “I have messages to share, messages of hope, of redemption, of survival, of love and acceptance of ourselves and each other. My prayers are still sometimes obscure, but I believe there is a God who hears us.”

Apryl Miller at Saatchi Art

Update: For the month of July, The Apryl Miller Interview at E·ratio was viewed five-hundred and ninety-four times!
