Keith Nichols

Fine artist and painter in oils/mixed-media, influenced by the natural world and the forces that shape it – elements, sounds, scents and inner emotions.

I am inspired by the natural world and the extreme qualities of light that reveals the fabric and undulation of land, sea and sky, storm and turmoil. I’m drawn to the edges of things and my concerns over the vulnerability of wild places and the lives they support is an important aspect of my working ethos. I reflect upon my own emotional responses to the sights, sounds and smells that I experience, hoping to bring an added dimension to the abstracted realities I paint. I return to a place many times to find a newer sense of expression.

​My work is expressive and experimental; freely applied paint reflects natural movement and emotional context. The concealing and removal of layers of paint creates a history pertinent to each work.

​Works are held in private collections, both in the UK and internationally.
