Keith Purser

Painting has always been preoccupied by landscape & seascape, but of places partly remembered, partly imagined, more recently tending to a simplified and abstract summary of the initial impulse to settle on one idea rather than another, that idea being of somewhere to either revisit or discover for the first time.

Keith has exhibited with the gallery since 2001 and in to date has had one solo exhibition:

Coast: 8th - 31st March 2007


Born in Kent in 1944, he attended Sidcup School of Art between 1960-2.
