Kristen Keegan – Elsewhere – Opening Reception

  • Latitude 53 invites members and guests to the opening reception of Kristen Keegan’s “Elsewhere”, September 20–November 2 in the ProjEx Room.

    This spring, Edmonton-based artist Kristen Keegan looked West from the cliffs in Northern Iceland, across the Greenland Sea. For the first time since finishing her undergraduate degree, she painted landscapes—fixated on the endlessness of a single view. Her small paintings are a record of getting lost, and meditating on an unknown elsewhere, where only the horizon line remains of the known world. Meanwhile, in the studio she explored another kind of elsewhere: painting watercolours from a tourist guidebook, “Thermal Pools of Iceland”.
