Felicity Keefe has exhibited in galleries throughout the UK, abroad in Stockholm, Amsterdam, Paris and Singapore, and at all of London’s major Art Fairs. Her contemporary landscape pieces are inspired by her experience of the British landscape as it changes and reacts to seasons, weather and time. She is also inspired by a blending of traditional landscape, literature and personal mythology which form an inner narrative within each series. Her work is distinctive for it's sense of atmosphere, often brooding, but also starkly beautiful. Felicity currently lives and works in Bath.
HIDDEN SPACES AND DISTANT FIRES
The paintings in this series describe a state of flux, the change from day into night, summer into winter, outward into inward. The shadows grow tall across the land. Along the river banks there are dark corners and hidden spaces. The world rotates into Autumn and Summer falls to the pathways in a confetti of petals and leaves. The winds change and the birds are blown southward in elegant displays like feathered acrobats against the clouds. Decay, woodsmoke, distant flames…the smell of life in death and death in life. Inwardly turning the land becomes darker but the skies still rage with colour at dusk. Although shadows and veils race across each surface, the work holds a warmth in its heart. Although each painting is a riddle of obscured spaces and drifting mists the flames burn in the distance like dreams.
