Organic Light

Keith Lemley´s work comes from the surroundings of his studio, in rural Appalachia, USA. In his artist’s statement he explains his growing “interest in being part of and observing natural systems, time and the process of life and death, and an aesthetic sensibility synthesizing the organic and the machine.” This can be seen with this installation, “Something and Nothing”. The combination of natural elements and industrial lights create an unexpected harmony.

Keith Lemley’s sculptural installation consists of a repetition of white neon tubes of which mimic the natural variation found in the logs at their centre.
Lemley creates a space for dialogue between nature and the machine through filling the space with artificial light that is are shaped into organic forms.
This work was exhibited at 1708 Gallery in Richmond, VA in 2011. In the same year he showed The Woods, Keith created a set in which you feel in a movie set, you are transported to a world of  mystery .
