The beauty of texture and color.
The theme of my painting has been a search for stillness, a form of mediative calm. Painting is my escape from a world of too much noise and information. It’s a way to step away from those inner dialogues that keep us from being truly calm. My Paintings contain no objects, nor do they represent things or places. They are flat two dimensional works. They do not mirror the world but provide a porthole for escape. This series of painting reflects my continuing fascination with color. Softer pigments and stronger under paintings with movement are the focus of this series, forcing the viewer to go a step deeper into the work. The goal of my work is to provide a sense of peacefulness and a meditation to the viewer. Thus creating a separate space as an oasis away from the complexities of modern living where one can reflect on what is essential.
— Keith R. Breitfeller
Breitfeller was born and raised in Catasauqua, a small town in eastern Pennsylvania, in 1952. He proceeded to attend Kutztown college, studied with New York Artist Marion Pinto. He also studied at the Barnstone Studio.
He now resides in Philadelphia, where his work was shown at Sande Webster Gallery, Vox Populi, Finer Things Gallery in Tennessee, and the Adrian Falcon Gallery in Texas and Lyman Eyer in Massachusetts. His work is included in many private and corporate collections in Washington DC., New Jersey, Pennsylvania and New York. Keith has also become an avid tango dancer over the last 10 year.
Keith’s work has been influenced by the impressionist, modernist and pointillist. He uses figure to ground relationships to deliberately confuse the subject matter, allowing the viewer to find, him or herself, in the artwork. His aim is to provide a place of peace and contemplation to the viewer.
When you hang this piece, as is Breitfeller’s aim to deliberately confuse the subject matter, it will be up to you which side is up and which side is down. The texture of this work is rough and bumpy. It is very tactile in nature. There is not a frame on this painting which will allow the purchaser to create a unique and personal structure that will enclose this work of art.
