American Artist Casey McKee Premiers His Newest Series Antimatter in Frankfurt, Germany

Frankfurt am Main, Germany – July 2, 2020 – Galerie Greulich will open Antimatter, a solo exhibition by American artist Casey McKee on 24. July, on view until 2. September 2020. Casey McKee is an international artist known for combining photography and painting into thought-provoking narratives dealing with society and systems of power.

The new works which form the series Antimatter are about a solitary figure confronting a post-civilization world. Her body is contained within a protective suit, suggesting that the environment has become hostile to humans. She explores various locations of decayed civilisation as if on an alien planet. The works are silent and contemplative. She encounters life only amongst the trees in the forest.

Casey McKee has developed his unique process combining photography and painting over the past twenty-four years. In each of the works one sees elements that are photographic as well as elements that are entirely created with paint. His process begins with researching costumes and props and finding locations to stage his scenes. In this particular series, the images were first photographed in an abandoned military barracks in the former east German countryside. He then printed the images in black and white onto canvas. Finally, he worked oil paint into the images, enhancing the existing photographs and blurring the boundaries between painting and photography.

Born in Phoenix, Arizona, McKee has spent most of his professional career in Berlin, Germany. He now resides in a small village in the German countryside. His works have been exhibited and collected throughout the world.
