New for autumn 2018

Paint, Brush & Spirit

Keith Jansz returns to 78 Derngate with this new exhibition for Autumn 2018.

Keith, a mouth artist, has held numerous solo exhibitions in the UK, US and Italy and his paintings have been exhibited in museums around the world including Lisbon, Madrid, Copenhagen, Shanghai and Atlanta.

Keith enjoys exploring the sensations of light in his paintings, from the sparkling reflective sunlight at the beach to the unique atmospheric light in Venice and the long shadows of winter light on snow. He also enjoys the demanding discipline of painting the human figure, in pastel or oil. Like his heroes the Impressionists, Keith revels in the challenge of painting ‘en plein air‘ to capture the most authentic effect, completing his paintings in the studio.

He writes
“I’m delighted to be exhibiting again at 78 Derngate, this time showing British works. My main inspiration is light, which constantly changes, so in order to express the variations of light I return to the subjects of London, Cornwall and local scenes, time and time again. I hope these images express something of the joy I had in painting them.”

Works are for sale.
