Erin O’Keefe’s Things as They Are in The New Yorker

Read in The New Yorker.

Printed in the October 5, 2015 Issue.

ERIN O’KEEFE

September 9, 2015 – October 10, 2015

Photographs of geometric arrangements of painted boards and tinted Plexiglas will inevitably draw comparisons to Barbara Kasten’s influential oeuvre. O’Keefe, a New York artist and architect, nods to Kasten (and to Eileen Quinlan and Sara VanDerBeek) but stakes her own claim to the territory—call it Bauhaus playhouse—in a series of seductively simple color images. Using reflected light and overlapping colors, O’Keefe creates luminous architectural illusions; when she applies paint to her constructions she conjures a winningly trompe-l’oeil effect. Through Oct. 11.
