"This image is from a recent series I did that was exploring the idea of natural spaces, people groups, and cultures being affected by colonization over the last couple of centuries not only in North America but world wide. This painting was based on a photo that Edward Curtis took at turn of the century. His efforts as a Ethnologist was to capture and document culture, language, folklore, diets and way of life of native people groups of North America. All my proceeds of this print will go to a non profit that directly supports a reservation in South Dakota."
Jeremiah’s work is both inspired by and investigative of finality. Exploring themes of nature and coexistence, he employs a multitude of stylistic approaches which range from loosely abstracted to highly rendered objects.
These differing image styles are generally coexisting in a single piece thus creating a juxtaposition of reality and surrealism. He is best known for his narrative work that depicts themes of disenfranchised circus elephants, yet this is only a portion of his already developed, and collected, body of work.
Jeremiah Kille is a native of Santa Cruz, CA he began his career as a custom surfboard builder with strong communal ties to surf & skate culture. He would go on to receive a BFA from San Jose State and currently pursues painting at his studio full time.
