"The Artists Laboratory series" presents the more experimental and less familiar work of contemporary artists, opening up the creative process to explore the conceptual and practical concerns with which they engage. This first title focuses on the work that Ian McKeever made after moving to Hartgrove in Dorset. In response to this new environment he created a group of large, nearly monochromatic abstract paintings whose delicate bands and veils of paint evoke an altered experience of light and open space. Drawn inside as well as out, he continues to photograph the interior of his rural home, using modulations of exposure to capture the ephemeral beauty of simple domestic details. Highly regarded as a painter, McKeever publishes his photographs here for the first time. This book includes an essay on the Hartgrove paintings by the late Norbert Lynton, and a conversation between McKeever and the sculptor Richard Deacon in which the two artists discuss their respective practices and their thoughts on art photography in a digital age.
