BFA: Minneapolis College of Art + Design, 2013
GraceMarie Keaton physically and conceptually alters imagery so as to produce photographic objects that question materiality, representation, origin, perception, and assumed photographic truths. A BFA graduate of the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, Keaton has participated in a number of residency programs and has shown her work in galleries in the Midwest and East Coast. In 2013-14 GraceMarie received the Jerome Foundation Fellowship for Emerging Artists. GraceMarie Keaton’s most recent photographic work challenges the notion of the still life as a representation of a fixed moment. Moving between very traditional modes of image capture and manipulation to more improvised forms, her experimental production techniques result in objects that are sites of multiple simultaneous projections.
