Kim Keever’s large-scale photographs of painterly landscapes invoke a sense of the sublime reminiscent of the Hudson River School and 19th Century Romanticism. In actuality, Keever creates his timeless worlds by carefully constructing small-scale topographies in a 100 gallon glass tank, which he then fills with water, disperses liquid pigments and lights with colored gels to achieve the ephemeral atmospheric conditions that enliven his work. They are fully fabricated illusions that conjure the realms of our imagination. These conceptually contrived works address the psychology of the picturesque and our perception of the unaltered landscape and the natural world.
