Abstract Art Daily Artsy Paintings

Gestural Forces: Zachary Keeting

For many an abstract painter, there is a tense push and pull between artist and material. ย What makes their heart race is the predictable inquietude of the way the paint will respond and react. ย The work of artist Zachary Keetingย is filled, layer upon layer, with painted gestures carefully considered yet surrendered to the forces of material.

Keeting’s planes of paint are built up like high rises jammed into a cityscape, one on top of the other, but retaining such distinction that the resulting paintings have almost a collage-like feel. Paint is pushed, poured, pulled, manipulated this way and that so that a beautiful chaos ensues.
