Kim Keever: Random Events: New York

Waterhouse & Dodd is delighted to present Random Events, a show of new works by American abstract photographer Kim Keever.




"It took me about two years of imagining what it would look like to totally simplify my working process. When I finally tried just dropping paint into water and photographing the results through a 200 gallon aquarium wall, to my amazement, the paint dispersed in so many interesting ways.


Timing of the shots is crucial and short-lived, as the process of releasing the dyes and pigments quickly transforms into a random event. It is a very freeing process. I can explore color and form like never before.


Even after 20,000 shots I can't predict which will be completely successful and only a fraction are printed. But I have accepted the lack of control and embrace the randomness." – Kim Keever, 2015
