Open Studios Hours December 2/3 11-5
Keith Petersen is an artist and photographer based in Oakland, California. He graduated from California College of Arts and Crafts with a BFA with High Distinction in Photography and has shown work in San Francisco and the greater Bay Area.
His work explores the connections between science, nature and art. Working with photography and mixed media in a studio practice, his interest in the intersection of the natural sciences and art has led to a series of explorations of the alchemical interactions between organic and synthetic pigments and other elements. He uses photographic processes to document the often unstable and ephemeral reactions between these substances.
