landscapes by kim keever

‘forest 70b’, 2007 (c-print)

the large-scale photographs of new york based artist kim keever are meticulously created by photographing
miniature topographies inside a large fish tank. the pictures appear to be based on traditional landscape
paintings, but the process is any thing but traditional. keever sculpts miniature landscapes inside the tank,
which is then filled with water. coloured lights and pigments creates dense, atmospheric environments that
make the small scenes come to life. keever views his works as an evolution of the landscape tradition and
deliberately acknowledges the conceptual artifice.
