KERA Arts & Seek: Interview with Former Dallas Artist Keri Oldham, by Lanie Delay

 

 

 

Keri Oldham is a Brooklyn-based artist working in watercolor on paper.  Her work combines images of demons and warriors with tragic figures and victorious ones. Inspired by the myth of the labyrinth as well as the short story, The Yellow Wallpaper, her work depicts women facing fears both internally and externally. The Yellow Wallpaper, is a 19th century tale that chronicles the progressive insanity of a woman forced into 'rest-therapy' after being diagnosed with 'hysteria.'  In her paintings Oldham creates wall-paper like designs and bloodied tableaus that draw on biblical stories, medieval demonology, fashion and revenge fantasy.  These images are modern allegories for facing our demons as well as women’s continued fight for success and identity in modern life.  

Originally from Dallas, Texas, Oldham has exhibited her work throughout the country, including: Kirk Hopper Fine Art in Dallas, The Dallas Museum of Art, Jen Bekman Gallery in New York, Honey Ramka Gallery in Brooklyn, The Hardware Store Gallery in San Francisco, The Whatcom Museum in Bellingham, Washington, and The Reading Room in Dallas.  She was a 2011 Summer Central Track resident and has received awards including a 2010 New Media Fellowship with BRIC Arts in Brooklyn. 

Oldham also c0-foundered Field Projects, a project space and gallery in Chelsea. Her work has been spotlighted and reviewed by  New York Magazine/ The CUT, Arte Fuse, The New York Times, The Dallas Morning News, Paper City, Texas Monthly, Beautiful/Decay, Gawker Arts, Bad at Sports, Glasstire, D Magazine, San Francisco Weekly, KERA Art & Seek and others.
