Take Refuge


In his multidisciplinary art practice, Kevin Cooley works across the mediums of photography, video and installation. In his work, he looks at our relationships with nature, technology and ultimately, each other. His series “Take Refuge” shows human interaction with the elemental forces of nature, exploring human presence and intervention in the landscape.

Kevin explains; “The Classical forces of nature (earth, fire, wind, water), are presented in contention with one another, or against a human figure, alluding to our physical and psychological attempts to understand our position in the universe and the obsession with exploring, conquering, and ultimately controlling it.”
