Dale Keys, New Westminster Member Since March 2008 Artist Statement I have been a graphic artist my entire career and have been exhibiting my art in galleries for the last 5 years. I have shown both my digital and acrylic art in a gallery setting.
My abstract art is a result of much experimentation with the computer media in an effort to generate art that has a painterly feel. I find a lot of digital art to be quite sterile and I want my images to have mood, emotion and warmth. "Secret Garden" is a collection of abstracts based on flowers. I have distorted images into sensual abstracts with an emphasis on vivid color and graceful lines.
My influences are Georgia O'Keeffe, Martin Mull, Ross Penhall, Roy Lichtenstien.
I also have a portraiture business online: artbykeys.ca
