Rosalind Keith

Rosalind Keith.jpg

 Rosalind Keith was born in Surrey in the South of England in 1965. 

After completing her secondary education she moved to Italy to study at the Charles H Cecil studio In Florence where she gained a training in ‘Sight size’ portraiture, still life and nude.An inquisitive independent mind led away from Classical realism to years experimenting in various painting mediums,using a more contemporary approach to her work to create a unique style to express her inner world. Her initial ‘informal' work centers on the world of nature, where mountains and sea feature silently without human forms.The death of her mother in 2012 marks a dramatic turning point when she returns to the human figure to express the emotions of maternity.Her current work focuses on the world of women and relationships. 

Rosalind started exhibiting her work in the early 90'S in collettive exhibitions in Italy and abroad. 

Rosalind has partecipated in numerous competitions classifying in first and second positions. 

Her work has been published in Italian and International publications. 

Two of her images have been archived in the collection of prints and drawings of Vittorio Sgarbi. 

Rosalind has work in private collections in Italy and abroad and has recently been included in the permanent collection by the Diocesean Museum of Gubbio . 

She lives in Florence with her husband Roberto and daughter Lisa June.

Artist Statement 

For me painting is both action and meditation. 

The canvas is a micro cosmos where I can make a series of decisions and determine the outcome. 

Every canvas presents me with the opportunity to leave a mark that is uniquely mine. The meditative aspect is related to where this series of ‘marks' and choices takes me in the process.Art takes us ‘somewhere else’s it can unburden us from our troubles and anxiety.It can unite us with humanity.

Every story Can be shared and lifelong omissions given voice.There is no better place for truth and freedom than on a canvas.
