Kim Keever: Three Dimensional Rorschach

Winston Wächter is pleased to announce our first solo exhibition with New York photographer Kim Keever. Trained as a thermal engineer (having worked on several NASA projects), Kim Keever brings his knowledge of science and physics to his experimental experiences of water and paint. He blends his “ingredients” in what he calls his “painting machine” (a large water filled aquarium) and documents the transient results. For Keever, he is only in control of what is put into the process, but the results are wholly random. From his numerous documentary images, he will narrow down to a select few, spending months discovering the composition which moves him most. What excites Keever in part, is the distinctly personal reaction each viewer will have with the forms, bringing part of their memories to each artwork.

Kim Keever’s work is included in numerous collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Museum of Modern Art, New York, Brooklyn Museum of Art, Brooklyn, Hirshhorn Museum, Washington, DC. He has been featured in many publications including the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and Wired Magazine.

#fromwhereistand by Arit Gordon

Winston Wächter is proud to announce the group exhibition #fromwhereistand. #fromwhereistand is an Israeli photography exhibition, curated by Tel Aviv native and Seattle resident, Arit Gordon. Gordon wanted to share the love of her home and its richness in artistic talent. Since moving, her perspective has changed, and through this exhibition we see her view of Israel through the eyes of photographers Yair Barak, Asaf Gam Hacohen, and Gidon Levin.

Storefronts Program – South Lake Union Artists

Storefronts South Lake Union presents the last round of installations in 2018 – The year is comprised of three rounds themed around the concept of building relationships with cities, people, and nature. In this third round we explore the works of artists exploring issues relating to nature- a study of terrain, habitat, and the systems that support or degrade the very ground we stand on. Join us in reflecting on the strength and fragility of our shared Earth.” – Hanako O’Leary, Storefronts Program Coordinator
