Winston Wächter is pleased to announce a solo exhibition by New York photographer Kim Keever. Trained as a thermal engineer (having worked on several NASA projects), Kim Keever fuses the images of his childhood fantasy with his knowledge of science and physics. His exploration into his unique process began by trying to physically recreate the imagery of his memories. By constructing intricate landscapes inside a water-filled aquarium, he was able to create the mysterious atmosphere of the mind. His use of a lush and vibrant palette fuses his landscapes with a surrealism and ephemeral quality, creating spaces for dreams, mediation and wonder.
Kim Keever’s work is included in numerous collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Museum of Modern Art, New York, Brooklyn Museum of Art, Brooklyn, Hirshhorn Museum, Washington, DC. He has been featured in many publications including the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and Wired Magazine.
