The MINI Interview with BIG Exclusive Artist, Caitlin Keegan

Name: Caitlin Keegan
Location: Brooklyn, NY
Website: caitlinkeegan.com

Talk about where you live, what you love about your place, and how you think it might influence how you create work?

I live in Brooklyn and I like that it’s always changing- new places open, different people move in, and there are always new things to do. You can walk around the neighborhood and see different things on the same route over the course of a day. I like the glimpses of peoples’ lives that you get from seeing what they leave on the sidewalk. I also love that my friends and family are nearby- I always have someone to show work to if I need a fresh perspective.

Do you have an ideal place you wish you could escape to for art making?

I’ve always loved Vermont and I’d like to have a small house in the mountains. I think I work best surrounded by organized clutter, and some green outdoor space would be nice. Aside from the park, that is something I don’t have in Brooklyn. One of my favorites on the Selby recently was Karen Walker’s house (First Image shown above) in New Zealand.

Thanks Caitlin! – Kelly Lynn Jones

let me be the first to acknowledge caitlin as an amazing artist and person…i love her aesthetic and the fact that she would like to live in vermont – certainly a place that encourages creativity. i may have a slight bias but i also understand talent so…
