Bio

Erin O’Keefe is a visual artist and an architect. Her work explores both the specific properties of photography and many of the material and theoretical concerns of architecture. She is in conversation with a lineage of photographers from Florence Henri and others in the early 20th century to Barbara Kasten, who started exhibiting in the early 1970s, to contemporaries who are also examining photography on an elemental level specific to the digital age.

Erin O'Keefe's body of work operates in the spaces between photography, painting, and sculpture. She constructs sculptural arrangements comprised of painted cardboard, plexiglass, or wood staged on a studio tabletop, then photographs them in moments of distortions. Her work is in numerous prominent private collections, as well as in the collections of the Mead Art Museum of Amherst College and the Cleveland Clinic.
