Keith Hillsden 

Keith Hillsden is an artist who mainly works with pastels and mixed media. To Keith, art is entertainment: to be able to touch the work, as well as to interact with the work is important.

“I prefer to keep the composition as simple as I can, and at times leave some areas of the paper untouched.”

His works are based on inspiring situations: visions that reflect serene contemplation, combined with subtle details of odd or eccentric elements. His mixed media artworks establish a link between the paintings reality and that imagined by its conceiver.

With influences as diverse as Monet and Edward Hersey, his variations are crafted from both traditional and modern structures.

“Capturing the light is everything! Its elusive quality can transform a figure or a landscape in just a matter of seconds. I strive to convey that sense of place by capturing its fleeting magic.”
