Kim Keever: ABSTRACTS

From 2 April to 6 May 2014

Waterhouse & Dodd is pleased to present ABSTRACTS, a solo exhibition of new works by Kim Keever. This is the artist's first solo project at the gallery.

“I’ve always lived near the water, whether it was the eastern shore of Virginia, Chicago or New York City.  There’s a peaceful attraction to the flat rippling surface and the mysteries below. Maybe it’s a stretch but once I started taking photographs of constructed landscapes submerged in water in a 200-gallon aquarium, I realized I had found my signature work as an artist and have continued making and photographing underwater landscapes.

A couple of years ago I introduced plaster figures, stick birds with feathers, and reclining dogs made of plaster-covered branches into the water which would slowly erode away. Recently I have taken an abrupt turn from these constructed landscapes and instead have been concentrating on images in the areas of figuration and abstraction, all within the confines of my large water-filled aquarium.

Aside from the continued use of water in a tank surrounded by lights, I have reached a simplified culmination of the process. That is, I dispensed with the “props” altogether and I’m only working with colored paint pigment dropped into water and photographing the event. It is a very freeing process. I can explore color and form like never before, albeit through random events since I have very little control once the paint starts moving.  All of the forms in the new work are naturally occurring in the tank; they coalesce, break apart and wither as other paint clouds form. After a lot of trial and error, I eventually get some interesting new work.” - Kim Keever, 2014
