Kim Keever started his career as a thermal engineer working on projects for NASA, when he later became a full time artist is the late 1970’s he found himself still drawn to his original vocation and so then found a way to combine the two with breath-taking and extraordinary results.
Keever maintained a scientific and investigative process to his art-work in both his abstract and landscape series.
Within is 200-gallon tank in his workshop he meticulously drops different coloured paint into the water and photographs the paint drops as the dispurse, diffuse and erupt throughout in multi-coloured magical clouds.
Keever’s landscapes are detailed miniature scenes built by the artist him self and then carefully lowered into his tank. These dioramas of fictitious environments are brought to life with coloured lights and the dispersal of pigment, producing ephemeral atmospheres that he must quickly capture with his large-format camera.
Kim Keever lives in New York City and has exhibited extensively in museums and galleries throughout the United States and abroad.
