Contemporary artist Keith Grant, represented by Chris Beetles Gallery, reveals his new work inspired by a second visit to the Faroe Islands.

About

Keith Grant, one of the greatest living British landscape painters, has been represented by the Gallery since 2009. The new show, based on Grant's recent visit to the Faroe Islands, reveals a series of extraordinary, resonant images of nature. 

"I intended that these new works resulting from my second visit to the Faroe Islands should be not simply suggestive of the actuality but declamatory of it. I hope I have created in these 18 related compositions a series expressive of the light, space and maritime mood of a unique and hauntingly beautiful place.
Sea-birds are detectable in many of the paintings but on a small scale as agents of the air eddying around precipitous cliffs, not as identifiable species.
A prominent feature of several paintings is the rather surrealistic device of a sky populated by the serried ranks of cumulous clouds, which are reflected mirror-like on the flat, upturned surfaces of sea-drenched old concrete jetties found all over the islands. This for me creates a magical and inspiring inversion of reality."
