Artist Statement

Keith Wilsonís Architectural paintings are icons dedicated to an architecture that is no longer conceived or constructed. They represent his continuous study of architectural form. In his work he uses building structures and details in playful juxtaposition, allowing classical elements and vernacular constructions to have their own way, proliferating variations. His color is similarly the product of memory and imagination, inspired by the painted buildings he has seen in Italy and Greece. The result of this graphic exploration is a body of several hundred paintings and drawings, in which knowledge of historic form, fantasies of buildings that might be, and studies for commissioned works are all intermixed.
Recently he has been painting landscapes of inspired by the hills that are adjacent to the UC Berkeley campus. The original paintings are painted with Chinese brushes using sumi ink and watercolor mixed with black water.

The artist is offering signed limited edition prints of the paintings from his private collection. The printing method employed has a very high resolution which reproduces the brilliance and transparent qualities of the original watercolor paintings using permanent, archival ink on 100% rag watercolor paper.

Keith Wilson was born in 1954 in Redding, California and has lived in the Bay Area since 1972. He has traveled extensively in Britain, Europe, Japan, China, Chile and Tunisia with his camera and sketchbook. ...
