Initially, Kim Keever’s lush, large-scale photographs of moody landscapes look like they were produced by the Hudson River School painters or the French or German Romantics: sublime, vast, and timeless. Upon closer inspection, cracks in the illusionism appear, as Keever’s landscapes are actually detailed miniature scenes that he builds himself, places in a 200-gallon tank, submerges in water, and photographs. Keever is interested in the combination of artifice and naturalism in landscape painting and how this has shaped our perception of nature.
