Kevin Cooley is a multidisciplinary American artist, working across the media of photography, video and installation. He lives and works in Los Angeles and Brooklyn, NY. In his artwork, Cooley likes to create frameworks to observe our complex, evolving relationships to nature, to technology, and ultimately to each other.
Kevin Cooley: ‘Take refuge explores human presence and intervention in the landscape, ranging from the rudimentary actions of building fires, marking a path in a snowy landscape, and taking shelter in caves, to more sophisticated circumstances such as a very powerful scientific laser beam piecing into the night sky. The Classical forces of nature (earth, fire, wind, water), are presented in contention with one another, or against a human figure, alluding to our physical and psychological attempts to understand our position in the universe and the obsession with exploring, conquering, and ultimately controlling it’.
