Kim Keever (b. 1955, New York City)
Having graduated with a degree in Thermal Engineering from Old Dominion University, Norfolk, VA, Kim Keever briefly pursued an engineering career, working primarily on NASA projects. However, by the late 1970s, he started his photography career in New York City, working for over four decades in the East Village of lower Manhattan. Recently he moved to Miami, where he now lives and works. Using light as a medium, he fuses photography with his knowledge of science and physics. Keever creates abstractions and fantasy landscapes through a unique process of dispersing special paints in a 200-gallon tank of water and repeatedly capturing the colors’ movements in dissolution, a technique both spontaneous yet highly controlled. 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; and Hirshhorn Museum, Washington, DC.; and private collections. He has been featured in many publications, including the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Vogue Magazine, High Fructose Magazine, and Wired Magazine.
