With brilliantly billowing and voluminous bursts of radiance, these fellow explorers of colour and movement are a match truly made. Today’s This&That features the work of Kim Keever, a seasoned New York artist who began his practice back in the 70’s and Belgrade-born fashion designer Roksanda Ilinčić who, since starting her fashion label in 2003, has dressed some of the best.

Kim Keever’s sensuous images have been called “a hydroponic Jackson Pollock”. Having studied engineering and interning at NASA, Keever who was living in the East Village – think Andy Warhol, Grandmaster Flash and subway graffiti – ditched it all for a fishtank and a camera. These sublime images are tiny instances caught on a large format camera, the captured moments as pigment hits water, dispersing in tiny sparks and swelling plumes of colours.

About this very time Roksanda Ilinčić was born, and following her mother’s obsession with Yves Saint Laurent, she found herself – after an appropriate education at Central Saint Martins – dressing the likes of Tilda Swinton, Michelle Obama and our very own Cate Blanchett. Sculptural shapes and innovative fabrics, Ilinčić’s play on the interactions of colour in blocks, in patchworks, in facets and in confettied pixelations are  truly captivating.
