Born and raised in Chicago, Kathleen Keifer hails from a lineage of artists, her mother being a notable figure in the fine arts realm. Under her mother's tutelage, Keifer was immersed in the world of art from an early age, shaping her into the second-generation artist she is today. A stalwart of New California Realism, Keifer's work breathes fresh life into the iconic landscapes of California, infusing them with a perspective that captivates the eye. In another facet of her portfolio, Keifer explores the realms of popular board games, ingeniously portraying them from unconventional angles, utilizing a palette of vibrant colors and clever compositions.

Central to Keifer's oeuvre is the interplay between time and timelessness. She delves into the essence of visual interaction, stripping elements down to their raw simplicity. Water, sky, and architecture undergo metamorphosis under the sway of weather and light, captured in Keifer's brush strokes that dance with luminosity and color, creating a tapestry of vibrant light and form. Through her art, Keifer encapsulates the essence of time and its perpetual passage.

Keifer's fascination lies in the isolation of objects within her compositions. She perceives individual magic in the mundane, seeking to elevate objects from popular culture into a new narrative. A prime example is her reinterpretation of lifeguard towers, transforming them from mere landscape elements into iconic symbols of pop art. In each stroke of her brush, Keifer unveils a world where the ordinary transcends into the extraordinary.
