Kim Keever (b. 1955) is an internationally acclaimed photographer. He is known for his colourful large-scale abstractions, which he creates by pouring paint into a 200 gallon tank of water in his studio. Keever uses his large-format digital camera to capture the resulting clouds of colour as they swirl into different forms and diffuse themselves through the water.
After earning an engineering degree from Old Dominion University in Norfolk, VA, Keever worked briefly as a thermal engineer for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). He switched careers to become a full-time artist in the mid 1970’s, however his previous vocation has continued to inform his work, lending a scientific methodology and investigative process to his artistic practice.
Kim Keever’s work has been exhibited internationally in numerous solo and group exhibitions. His work has been widely collected and can be found in numerous public and private collections, including the Bank of America; Harvard Library; Metropolitan Museum of Art, NYC; Museum of Modern Art, NYC; Brooklyn Museum of Art, Brooklyn, NY; Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, DC.
Keever lives and works out of Miami, Florida.
