My work is about seeing the unseen – the invisible presence which exists in our minds and surrounds all objects, experiences, and memories. Working in my studio in rural Appalachia, I have developed a keen interest in being part of and observing natural systems, time and the process of life and death, and an aesthetic sensibility synthesizing the organic and the machine.

I focus on the potential of materials and environments to be more and different than how they are currently perceived and understood; fulfilling an innate desire to explore, discover, share, and think. Drawing attention to physiological systems of vision, thought, and memory, I am interested in making conspicuous our perceptions of reality, time, and identity. Initially capturing attention through formal means, the content of my work then enters the cognitive as one actively relates this experience with those already held in the mind as memory. At this juncture of feeling and thought meaning is produced. By delaying this process through reorganizing the fabric of the everyday into the unusual, a heightened sense of the present is felt. Ultimately, one walks away more self aware and delighted in everyday visual ephemera and the experience of being a living breathing being.

Keith Lemley is a sculpture artist whose work focuses on creating an informative relationship between object and space and challenges the physicality of material presence. Many of his works are made up of opposing forces of ephemeral light and structural woodblocks that unite in a metaphorical existence of natural systems. His background in science and engineering is reflected in the unique synthesizing of media that portray scenes from nature and memory and inspire a sense of exploration for the viewer.

O artista Keith Lemley traz ao universo do design de interiores suas esculturas sensoriais. Ele segue o pensamento de que há uma espécie de presença invisível em torno de nossas mentes e de todo objeto, estabelecido como The Artist’s Statement.

As peças surgem da busca de Keith por aquelas características do material escolhido para a elaboração, que parecem estar adormecidas em seu interior, que não são de uso convencional.

O espectador encontra uma nova maneira de entender cada uma de suas obras através do abstracionismo da realidade, do tempo e da identidade, encontrados por meio de sistemas fisiológicos da visão, do pensamento e da memória.
