  • About the artwork

    Artwork sold in perfect condition

    Kathleen Keifer is a California-based internationally collected artist. She is a leading force of the New California Realism. With a high level of technical virtuosity Keifer creates a new sense of reality with textures and colors that seem to add lighting effects and distinct shadows, confronting the viewer with new interpretations of familiar objects.

    This one-of-a-kind 12 inch original square artwork is a photorealistic composition created with acrylic paint on canvas. It is wired and ready to hang. The sides are painted as a continuation of the front and it does not require framing. It signed by the artist on the front of the artwork. Convenient local Los Angeles area delivery. Affordable Continental US and global shipping is available. A certificate of authenticity is included.

    Kathleen’s paintings invite the viewer to consider the complex relationship between time and timelessness. It is the sheer visual interaction between the elements, taken in their bare simplicity that interests her. For her, painting captures the very essence of time and its passage. She believes that actual sites and places have an individual magic. The goal is to take objects from popular culture and paint them in a new narrative context. Her complex approaches to popular board games present the subjects as living, tangible objects.

    Her interest took her to paint bits and pieces of board games. Her husband had been designing and inventing board games for thirty years, and her homes and studios are filled with games and playing pieces. She is fascinated with the response these board games (and bits and pieces) evoke in us as adults. Sure there's the tug of childhood and nostalgia, the innocence of playing a game with clear rules and clear winners. But somehow these board games live in an unconscious dream-realm where they represent something more than the detritus of playtime. All the while she is painting them in the context of living in Los Angeles, a cultural capital filled with pop art and pop culture.

    Born and raised in Chicago, Kathleen Keifer is a second-generation artist. Her mother, also a fine artist, exposed Keifer to the world of art and supervised her training from a very early age. This legacy continues today as Keifer closely nurtures the development of the artistic leaning in each of her three daughters, inspiring a third generation of female artists. Her works are represented by Artspace Warehouse Los Angeles and have been exhibited and collected internationally, including Chicago, New York and London.

Kathleen Keifer

United States Born in: 1963

Born and raised in Chicago, Kathleen Keifer is
a second-generation artist. Her mother, also a fine artist, exposed Keifer to
the world of art and supervised her training from a very early age. This legacy
continues today as she closely nurtures the development of the artistic leaning
in each of her three daughters, inspiring a third generation of female artists. 

She is a leading force of New California Realism. Some of her paintings show the
breathtaking California scenery with its recognizable elements in a new light,
while another series of paintings concentrates on depicting excerpts of popular
board games from new angles with a keen eye on a clever composition and vivid
colors.




Keifer's
paintings invite the consideration of the complex relationship between time and
timelessness. It is the sheer visual interaction between the elements, taken in
their bare simplicity that interests her. Water, sky, and architecture change
their appearance with the shifts in weather and light. Her broken brush strokes
depict light and color in luminous waves, dissolving form into a shimmering
surface of vibrant light. For her, painting captures the very essence of time
and its passage.




While
painting landscapes, Keifer became fascinated with isolating the objects in her
paintings. She believes that actual sites and places have an individual magic. Her
goal is to take objects from popular culture and paint them in a new context.
She began painting the silhouettes of life guard towers more as a pop art symbol
than a landscape element.
