Keri Oldham’s large-scale watercolor paintings are inspired by cinema, folk art, mythology and fantasy. Her 'The End' paintings explore our intense connection to movies by depicting various ending fonts taken from well known films such as 'Swamp Thing,' (1982) or 'It's a Wonderful Life,' (1946). These pieces are a celebration of film and meditation on how the stories encounter are apart of an even larger reality of time and space. Oldham's recent work in Night Fortress revisits the myth of the Labyrinth, mazes and fortresses as a modern allegory for contemporary life.
Oldham’s work was recently spotlighted by New York Magazine/ The Cut, AM New York and Arte Fuse for her solo-exhibition Blood Banner at Lazy Susan Gallery, NY and work in Nasty Women at the Knock Down Center in Queens. She has exhibited throughout the country including The Dallas Museum of Art, Kirk Hopper Fine Art and Jen Bekman Gallery in NYC.
