Erin O’Keefeis a visual artist and architect based in New York City. She received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Cornell University, and a Masters of Architecture from Columbia University. Her work has been featured in solo and group exhibitions in the US and abroad. The title of this series, “The Flatness” refers to both the material flatness of the photograph itself, as well as the perceptual flattening of the still life space. The images in this series explore the tendency of the camera to flatten pictorial space and as a result, foster ambiguous readings. There is a fertile tension between the compressed space of the image and the visual clues that allude to the dimensionality of the still life.
