Insight is based on developed imagery from several different mountainous and coastal origins: lichens, pebbles, rock face, flora, stone and the spatial relationships between these objects.
Though Insight has become increasingly more abstract, Keith’s artistic practice is still dominated by his seamless connection to the natural environment. Being as such, the abstracted landscapes retain their revelatory representational reference. Yet Keith’s interest is not so much in imaging the landscape- rather it is to flatten the depth of field entirely and evoke the fractal textures and being of the earth’s terrain. Keith explores the ethereal elements of atmospheric perspective and pushes it to the point of collapse. It is through colour and texture alone that the new visual referents are activated and a sense of immediacy is achieved.
