Abstract Underwater Art By Kim Keever
- Jessica Jungbauer
New York-based artist Kim Keever creates abstract underwater art with paint for his series ‘Abstract Images‘. Using a huge fish tank, the former NASA engineer-turned-artist drops various colors of paint into the water, which creates dreamy landscapes. Keever’s artworks has been exhibited in numerous collections across the States, such as The Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art in New York City.
Speaking of the process behind it, Keever says: “It took me about two years of imagining what it would look like to totally simplify my working process. When I finally tried just dropping paint into water and photographing the results through a 200 gallon aquarium wall, to my amazement, the paint dispersed in so many interesting ways. (…) 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 randomness.”
