D. H. McKee, Kitchener Member Since June 2009 Artist Statement Artist Bio - D. H. McKee:
D. H. McKee is a contemporary abstract artist. He was born in London, Ontario, Canada, and lives in Kitchener-Waterloo. In university, he studied literature, pop-culture, and visual media, obtaining a degree in English and Film from the University of Western Ontario. He has worked in the Kitchener-Waterloo area for the past decade, learning the artist's trade and making connections in the arts community while maintaining a career in the high-tech sector.
His education has helped him integrate film and video aesthetics into his artwork: video stylistic themes work their way into the paintings, and one can discern letterboxing, test patterns, scrambled pay-television signals and oversaturated colours in the works. It is in this manner that he explores different mediums and surface techniques.
