American Artist, Jeanne Keller finds flowers fascinating because of the great variety of colors, shapes, sizes, and the unique reflections and shadows they create. Her current works focus on capturing soft shadows, subtle reflections, delicate details, and the translucent qualities of the flowers. She draws the viewer into the painting by the close up presentation of the flowers inspired by works of Georgia O'Keefe. Keller's backgrounds are ofter dark and mysterious showing an influence by Caravaggio. Keller plans to continue her exploration of flowers and botanicals.
Keller is also intrigued with candles and the way the light and shadows engulf and influence the space. Lit candles also have translucent qualities. When the painting captures these qualities they give the illusion that the painted flame is flickering.
Jeanne Keller graduated from University of Texas at San Antonio in December 2004 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree with a concentration in oil painting. Her work has been shown in the Bulverde Area Arts Center Gallery, the Bismarck Studios in San Antonio, Texas, South Wind Gallery in Topeka, Kansas in the 2007 Oil painters of America Central Regional Juried Exhibition, the Whistle Pik Gallery in Fredericksburg, Texas at the 2007 Oil Painters of America 16th Annual National Juried Exhibition, San Antonio Airport Gallery (a juried exhibition), the Regional Artist Consortium (RAC) Gallery (a juried exhibition), and the Timberwood Park Studio Tours.
