We’ve been lucky enough to see the work of Milwaukee artist Keith Nelson in person, and we are huge fans. These seemingly simple installations are so clever and thoughtfully composed that they leave quite a lasting impression.
Here is what Keith says about his work: “My current body of work is intended to re-contextualize certain post-painterly/minimalist strategies. I am using “common” materials and mutable installations to subvert the dogmatic tenets of painting while expanding its boundaries. I’m also employing a methodology that leads me to decisions that I wouldn’t otherwise make. Discovering relationships by finding, arranging and reconfiguring the previously unknown is where painting lives for me. My belief is that painting is not a literal term but rather this specific mode of creative thinking.”
