Paul D. McKee

Paul D. McKee, a 2012 recipient of the James and Janie Washington Foundation Residency, 2011 nominee for the UW Henry Art Gallery’s prestigious BRINK Award and a 2010 recipient of a King County - 4Culture’s Individual Artist Grant, is a Seattle based painter, sculptor and installation artist and arts educator who received a BFA from Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle (2000) and an MFA from Wichita State University, Wichita, KS (2008).

McKee’s artworks utilize items from exaggerated domestic environments (specifically items pertaining to the creation of home by traditional hetero-normative standards), juxtaposing them with objects and materials associated with men and masculinity.  By questioning the competition of these items with one another (and their classification in relation to gender), McKee is commenting on the social structure of the home and family in our modern society and its impact on non-traditional family units. While trying to convey these issues in order to initiate a visual dialog, McKee introduces the viewer to his present situation: an outsider in a traditional heterosexual environment attempting to make sense of these common structures and their relationship to success and the accomplishment of the so called “American dream”.

McKee’s artworks are in private collections across the United States and Europe.
