Artist Profile


Kim Keever

b. 1955, New York, New York / based in New York, New York.

photography

Kim Keever’s unique process combines elements of photography, sculpture, and painting to create otherworldly landscapes and abstract compositions of billowing forms. Constructing environments out of a variety of materials in a tank full of water, Keever then adds colorful pigments, gels, and light to create fleeting, smoky clouds which he then captures with his camera--in passing, reconceiving the medium of “watercolor.”

Recalling at times the painted landscapes of nineteenth century Romanticism, but also related to the sculpture-based photography of Thomas Demand, Keever’s work pushes photography in a new direction, playing with artifice, abstraction, chance, and the boundaries that traditionally separated artistic media. His newest series uses balloons to create vistas that simultaneously evoke the wide expanse of the universe and the molecular world of the body.
