Erin O'Keefe

The Netherlands, Amsterdam ALBADA JELGERSMA

In her practice, Erin O’Keefe (1962, US) is informed by the disciplines of architecture and photography. Her work consists of photographs of tabletop still life arrangements that she constructs in her studio. Her images exploit the layer of distortion and misapprehension introduced by the camera as it translates three-dimensional form and space into two-dimensional image. This inevitable misalignment is the central issue in her practice. Her photographs create an image where on the one hand object and on the other hand reflection or shadow each receive the same attention and importance.
