Dennis Keeley: A Survey of the Quotidian Landscape

July 23 – August 27, 2022

My work addresses what happens in the moment in between what one sees and what might appear to some as perhaps the most common experience in Los Angeles.  With our experience of the freeway, there is a perception of traffic, motion, direction, congestion and maddening intervals of waiting. There is also evidence of a poetic environmental setting that invites questions about a more paradoxical and meditative consideration of time and space. 

These photographs were made through the window of my car, commuting from home to work and back.  The size of these images evokes the frame of my car window. I didn’t take a particularly scenic route, go any special place, or wait in a place for something to happen. Over time I noticed destination was almost secondary to the experience of the journey.
