Kim Keever Bio
About The Artist
Kim Keever's painterly, panoramic photographs represent the evolution of landscape painting embodied by the Hudson River School, Luminism, and Romanticism. Artificially contrived by the artist, Keever meticulously constructs his dioramas in a 200-gallon water tank and then submerges them in water. Working quickly to capture the diffusion of pigments with a large-format camera, he makes photographic glimpses into a world that is both familiar and fantastic, awash in unnatural colors.
