Keith Lemley: A Theory of Everything

Multi-color neon light fixture hanging on Woskob Family Gallery's wall.

Keith Lemley, our 2017–18 Woskob Wall artist, fabricated and installed the site-specific installation using his signature combination of maple and neon—two seemingly disparate materials unified through geometry and form. Called A Theory of Everything, the work explores the artist’s interests in current scientific theories connecting disparate parts of the universe through underlying geometries. The installation unifies the space and its unique architecture through the formal and material qualities of light, line, color, neon, and wood.

Keith Lemley received his BFA from Penn State in 2005 and his MFA from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, in 2010. In the past twelve years, he has mounted more than twenty solo exhibitions at prominent national and international venues, including Mixed Greens (NYC); 1708 Gallery (Richmond, VA); The Sculpture Center (Cleveland, OH); Favreau (Montreal, Canada); and Summerhall (Edinburgh, United Kingdom).
