Keith Mayerson

Keith Mayerson (b. 1966, Cincinnati, OH) considers himself an installation artist who works with paintings. Known for his work depicting historical figures, family snapshots, and urban landscapes, his work is frequently exhibited in salon-style installations. This creates broader narratives out of the sum of Mayerson’s work while lending a decidedly experiential quality to his practice.

Each work is imbued with allegorical content that relates to the world, yet allows through its formal nuances for the transcendent and sublime. The works stand on their own for form and content, but like a prose poem of images on walls, the viewer creates the ultimate meaning for the installations when they experience the paintings in the context of Mayerson’s series.
