Artist Biography

Kevin Cooley is a visual artist working in photography, video and public installation. His work examines the interaction between the natural environment and the one that we fabricate.

Previously he exhibited Remote Nation, a public installation above the High Line (2011); “At Light’s Edge” and “Night Shift,” at Massimo Audiello (2008, 2007).
