Kim Keever: Random Events
November 12 – December 8, 2015
Waterhouse & Dodd 960 Madison Avenue New York, NY 10021
Kim Keever's dazzling photographs, featuring colorful abstract compositions sometimes dubbed
'Art Under Water', come once again to Waterhouse & Dodd's Upper East Side gallery this
November. The Madison Avenue gallery's first show of Keever's abstracts in the spring of 2013
resulted in many sold out editions to collectors throughout the United States and in Europe, the
Middle East and Australia, and so this show is keenly anticipated.
The artist has been developing his unique approach to photography – pouring pigments into a
200-gallon tank and capturing the resulting explosions of color – for more than five years. There
is a refined unpredictability to his work, even after spending countless hours experimenting and
filming. Keever says "Even after 20,000 shots I can't predict which will be completely successful
and only a fraction are printed. But I have accepted the lack of control and embrace the
Keever has most recently been in the spotlight for his collaboration with Joanna Newsom on her
newly released album, 'Sapokanikan'. Reverting back to his hauntingly intricate underwater
landscapes, Keever's images add an elusive, mystical aura to Newsom's album. In the video
directed by Paul Thomas Anderson (Boogie Nights, Magnolia, There Will Be Blood, Inherent
Vice) for Newsom's single 'Divers', the singer is immersed in Keever's swirling landscapes.
Ray Waterhouse, the gallery owner, says "We are pleased to be part of the extraordinary
upward trajectory of Kim's career and to have placed his work in so many collectors' homes. We
advise collectors to view 'Random Events' at their earliest opportunity."
Kim Keever lives and works in New York City. His work is in numerous important public and
private collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Museum of Modern
Art, New York and the Brooklyn Museum of Art, Brooklyn.
