Erin O’Keefe in It’s Nice That

Erin O’Keefe continues to trick the eye with her bewildering photography By: Ayla Angelos, July 2, 2019 Erin O’Keefe is no stranger to It’s Nice That. She first graced our screens in 2014 and again in 2015 – like magpies we were instantly drawn to the bright colours and structural geometry that features throughout her work. And now she returns with her latest series, Built Work. But don’t be fooled – these aren’t paintings. The New York-based photographer and former architect majestically…Read More

Erin O’Keefe Featured in the Wing’s Feminist Salon Program in NYC

Read on Robb Report. With its rose-hued walls and girl-power programming, the Wing has become something of a legend in its own time. Since the club first opened in Manhattan’s Flatiron District in 2016, it has been regularly revered, occasionally mocked (all that pink!), and even investigated by a human rights group for its women-only policy. But the Wing, which now counts four locations in New York City and Washington, D.C., and is preparing to open two more outposts in California—both of which are…Read More

Erin O’Keefe in The Village Voice

A Painter’s Photographer: Erin O’Keefe’s Bewitching Shapes By R.C. Baker May 15, 2018 Read in The Village Voice. When I first walked into the gallery, I mistook Erin O’Keefe’s photographs for smooth-surfaced paintings, with an intense but exquisitely tuned palette and dynamic abstract compositions. Everything about them — the triangular shadows cast across two emerald-green rectangles by a mottled yellow crosspiece — recalled the way a painting’s built-up strokes impart a sense of time passing, of long sessions in the…Read More

Q&A with Blouin Artinfo and Erin O’Keefe

The Phenomenon of Light and Shadow: A Q&A with Erin O’Keefe BY TAYLOR DAFOE | APRIL 24, 2017 Read on Blouin Artinfo. Picking up in the tradition of still life photographers such as Barbara Kasten and Jan Groover, as well as sculptors like Brancusi and David Smith who used photography to explore the perspectival limitations of their own work, Erin O’Keefe makes pictures that reinvent physical space. She creates sculptures in a sense, but they’re not autonomous; they cannot exist…Read More

Review of “The City & The City” by Emily Colucci for Art F City

“A Door-Shattering Breakthrough at Denny Gallery’s Pop-Up ‘The City & The City’” by Emily Colucci, July 8, 2016 Read on Art F City Nothing underscores the fraught tensions of gentrification quite like the deafening sound of a large glass door shattering behind you. Moments after I entered Denny Gallery’s East Broadway pop-up space this Wednesday, the gallery’s door splintered with a bang and a startling crack. Fragmenting into a wall of tiny shards, the broken door trapped the gallerists and…Read More

April 23, 2016 (NOT SO) STILL LIFE AT WAVE HILL (Not So) Still Life presents novel ways that contemporary artists are transforming the still life genre to engage with current culture. As a subject, the still life gained popularity in the Early Renaissance as an alternative to landscape, portraiture or religious subjects. Compositions of natural and inanimate objects were often presented with allegorical connotations. Today, artists are creating new variations by working in photography and sculpture…Read More

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,…Read More

Erin O’Keefe named PDN’s Photo of the Day

Read on PDN Erin O’Keefe: Perspective, Light, Color September 9, 2015 Photographer Erin O’Keefe is fascinated by the way the camera “translates a three-dimensional subject into two-dimensional image.” A licensed architect who made sculptures before she devoted herself to photography about five years ago, O’Keefe composes the elements in her still lifes in a way that confuses perspective. Images in her newest series, “Things as They Are,” opening tonight at Denny Gallery in New York, are elegantly simple: They are…Read More
