Laura Kay Keeling (she/her/they) is a self-taught visual artist whose work encompasses analog photography/video, collage and installation-based projects. Her artwork explores how we form connections with each other and nature. She continues to think about and explore concepts relating to reciprocal care and how one might engage and interact with other humans, plants / animals, and nature as well as what the relationship of caring for each looks like. She considers how the artist selects and cares for materials throughout the creation of artistic works and in thinking more about these concepts, has begun to shift her practice to include not only analog photography but also elements from plants and flowers that she has grown or has foraged from other folks’ garden clippings.
She scans, photographs, presses and repeats.
Accomplishments include being selected to show one of her works at Daegu Art Fair in South Korea, exhibiting at CONTACT, BigArtTO and DesignTO as part of Exchange Piece. Collaborating with fellow artist Khadija Aziz and The Robert McLaughlin Gallery with a virtual project called Layers of Love x RMG as well as participating in the Akin Studio residency program at MOCA (Museum of Contemporary Art in Toronto).
