The genesis for Doug Keyes’ Portrait series was a Chuck Close catalog; Keyes photographed the catalog in 1998 for his celebrated Collective Memory series. With this image, multiple exposures resulted in two portraits that represented Close’s body of work. Keyes continues his focus on portraits, and now turns to work by other artists and documentarians, including art icons Andy Warhol, Cindy Sherman, Martin Schoeller and Frida Kahlo. Keyes selects images that collectively create an overall representation of each artist’s portraiture work. This series continues the artist’s sophisticated use of multiple exposure; an artistic paradigm that he has steadfastly cultivated over the course of some twenty years.

 

Keyes’ interest in the cognitive impression left after seeing the work is revealing, as it explores the nature of impression and time, and reminds us that the brain’s eye is not precise.  When we think of a person, the conjured image is not exacting, rather layered.  We live in time and space, always moving, always inputting new data. And this data is never objective, it’s not a collection of precisely copied information; it’s as imperfect as our memory.     - Adapted from Klompching Gallery Press Release.
