Julia Keates is a versatile artist, working in oil, acrylic and mixed media, on canvas, and on a variety of scales. Her paintings form a visual series - each piece of work relates to the other - each location - every experience - adds to and builds on what went before. Her work evokes the vitality of a particular moment, as it left its fleeting impression at the time.
..."preoccupation is colour - inspiration is location - and surfaces intrigue ..... Locations are explored through vigorous and perceptive analyses - via drawing, colour research, and experiments with composition and texture - with results often formalised, to further an infinite variety of creative outcomes."
Her most recent landscapes explore the layering of organic shapes, light effects, hand-written information, and texture.
Julia is always willing to accept a commission should you particularly wish to aquire one of her paintings which has already been sold.
