Kim Keever creates large-scale photographs by meticulously constructing miniature topographies in a 200-gallon tank, which is then filled with water.
These dioramas of fictitious environments are brought to life with colored lights and the dispersal of pigment, producing ephemeral atmospheres that are quickly captured with his large-format camera. Combining the real and the imaginary, he documents of places that do not exist but are somehow familiar.
Keever’s panoramas represent a continuation of the landscape tradition, as well as an evolution in painting. Referencing a broad history of landscape painting, especially that of Romanticism, Hudson River School and Luminism, they are imbued with a sense of the sublime.
