Keith kattner, do, retired from a successful neurosurgery practice at the age of 49 to pursue his first love—art. a prolific researcher, residency program director, and co-founder of the central Illinois neuroscience foundation, dr. kattner packed up in December 2010 and moved to Manhattan for two years to immerse himself in the new york art scene and the metropolitan museum of art. seven years and 600 paintings later, dr. kattner currently leads a bohemian existence. roaming like Van Gogh, his home base is in the Hudson River valley and NYC, the Midwest and the Canadian wilds. he is in constant pursuit of adventure and of the masters that artists dream of surpassing.
“it took me a considerable amount of effort to realize that the rules of art don’t always comply with the rules of science. I had to decide which set of rules would supersede the other,” says kattner. once he understood both sets of rules, he could then move forward in his own style with no limits and without hesitation.
Entropy is the universal law wherenature’s tendency is towardsrandomness and decay. Civilization,on the other hand, is one towardscreation and order. This uneasytransfer of energy between creation
and destructive process affects
everything we do and has been present since the beginning of time.— Dr. keith kattner
