Keith Edmier locates the intersection of the personal and the public to create works that mine our shared memory and history. Beverly Edmier (a Madonna-like image of the artist’s mother, dressed as Jackie Kennedy, with the artist visible in embryo), and Farrah Fawcett (a marble sculpture of the actress) draw upon classical formalism and popular culture. Edmier’s meditations on natural forms entangled with human interactions and interpretations have led to works such as Victoria Regia (Second Night
Bloom) and Victoria Regia (First Night Bloom), delicate water lilies rendered very large scale in dental resin. His early experience as a fabricator of orthodontic appliances and later as a prosthetic special
effects artist for Hollywood movies informs his exploration of new materials as well as his imagery.
