In Methods for Breeding Urban Systems, his second exhibition with the gallery, Colin Keefe draws, in ink on paper, meticulously crafted plan and perspectival views of fictitious built environments constructed with design principles gathered from diverse sources such as the reproductive processes found in microbiology and astronomy, urban planning and architectural theory.
In ink on paper, Colin Keefe draws meticulously crafted plan views of built fictitious environments constructed with design principles gathered from diverse sources such as the reproductive processes of plants, the propulsion methods of micro-organisms, urban planning and architectural theory.
Colin Keefe makes meticulously crafted plan views of fictitious built environments. Although drawn heavily from architectural pictorial schema Keefe's sculpture and ink and pencil drawings explore "methods for breeding buildings." This exhibition will focus on Keefe's Architectural Pollination series which implements a biological interpretation of a city's evolution, each drawing resembling a microscope slide teaming with life. In this petri dish of architectural spaces buildings breed, consume one another, fuse and fission.
