Kim Keever American, b. 1955
Kim Keever photographically captures colliding, billowing colors into soft yet explosive choreography, creating imagery as beautiful as it is technical. Trained as an engineer, Keever uses precision and innovation to compose his photographs, utilizing a strategic dispersal of specially prepared pigments into a 200-gallon aquatic tank, creating dynamic, random movement confined with the glass walls. After photographing through the glass, Keever crops the images to achieve the desired compositions. In this process dualities emerge: the images exist in a space between chance and control, between explosiveness and grace.
A recipient of the New York Foundation for the Arts Grant, Keever, had been honored with numerious exhibitions throughout the United States and abroad. His work is in the permanent collections of the Mint Museum of Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, the Hirshhorn Museum, Microsoft, Bank of America and Philip Morris.
