Biography

Keith Edmier's work draws deeply from personal and cultural memories, as in a sculpture of his mother in a pink Jackie Kennedy-esque suit (Beverly Edmier, 1967, 1998). In his Bremen Towne installation (2008), he created a full-scale reproduction of the kitchen from his childhood home, paired with sculptures and collages based on the house's decorative elements. His sculptures frequently employ alternative techniques and materials, such as a roll of sod cast in pink resin or cycad plants cast in basalt lava.
