Internationally-exhibited and collected Artist Warren Keating is a painter who has based his popular over- head series on images from digital video. The result brings together the perspective of the camera with the nuanced control of light and color that can only hap- pen with brush on canvas. Somewhere on a bridge or a hotel balcony, you’ll find the award-winning Artist capturing video of unsuspecting figures walking be- low. Later, in his studio in Santa Fe, you can find him pouring through frame after frame of the footage to find the perfect moment of weight shift, swing of the arm or tilt of the head, which he feverishly paints, covering large canvases with expressive paint. His abstract views of walking figures invite you to gain a new perspective and find poetry in the everyday, while his signature “Pixel Impressionism” brush strokes create the motion of these split-second moments and communicate Keating’s passion for the subject.
Gain a new perspective and find the beauty and poetry in the everyday in this figurative oil painting series. In each piece, the motion and texture of the moment is expressive in Keating’s signature brush work and bright, sophisticated palette.
Combining the perspective of the camera with the subtlety of light and color that can only be created with paint on canvas, I created these figurative paintings from an abstract viewpoint while using the motion and pixelation from digital video reference to give my work its signature style. The result is a contemporary take on traditional figurative painting and a series of works with universal appeal and individual character.
