Photographer Erin O’Keefe‘s work is beguiling and bemusing. Your first impression is ‘what a beautiful hyperrealistic painting,’ but your second impression is ‘wait, is that even a painting?’ And we owe that confusion to O’Keefe ability to influence dimensions. She is purposefully manipulating angles into a confounding waltz that entrances her audience.
Going against the grain of the hyperrealistic trend that has intrigued art enthusiasts for the past few years, O’Keefe creates photographs that look like highly realistic paintings instead of creating highly realistic paintings that look like photographs. Artistic irony, the richest irony of all!
