15542_1Keiron’s work examines the physical qualities of landscape and its history in art. In his practice Keiron aims to convey the tangible experience of the particular landscape he is involved with.  He works in the Impressionist tradition of  ‘plein air’  sketches translating his physical experience of the changing weather and light conditions directly to paper and canvas, seeking to capture a range of effects from the grand and the sublime to the most ethereal of mists and shifting light.  This is achieved in a subtle, monochromatic palette imbibing his work with a deep sense of the aged, of the heritage of the genre. He generally works on a miniature scale that intensifies a sense of atmosphere, depth and poetry.

Keiron’s practice is informed by the English Landscape tradition and how art history has assessed this genre particularly in the post modern era.  His work is inspired by the great landscape artists Constable, Gainsborough and Turner as well as lesser well known figures such as Cozens, Girtin and Palmer.

Keiron lives and works in North Devon. He has a degree in Fine Art from the Surrey Institute of Art and Design and since graduating has exhibited extensively across the UK.
