ERIN O’KEEFE – Death to flowers

When we hear the surname O’Keeffe, we instantly link it to the paintings of the American artist obsessed with flowers, seashells and any other simile that could be used to represent polychromatic pussy in big canvas. However, it seems that this visual imagery is going to change in the next years, as the figure of photographer Erin O’Keefe is rising, who presents us a series of images so full of optical illusions they could be signed by Yaacov Agam or by the masters of Baroque trompe l’oeil. Impossible perspective photography sets, loud patterns and fluor colours that create compositions with an unavoidable chaotic vibe. With her images, O’Keefe unites photography and sculpture, as we can see in the series “Collections” and “Things Fall Apart”, where she portrays different constructions made out of picture parts. Art with a strong theoretical component that would astound even the most cultivated of curators. Say goodbye to the Wisconsin O’Keeffe flower paintings, here comes the character that will renovate the world of photographic sets.
