binary speedbot software per opzioni Anwen Keeling is an artist who has taken up the tradition of photorealism and with a deft touch has produced a series of exhibitions that explore the story telling possibilities of contemporary painting.

watch Since 2007 Keeling has staged four shows with Liverpool Street Galleries, each exploring a facet of her formidable technique and the narrative of the frozen moment. Keeling’s The Falling Dark in 2007 presented a series of indoor scenes where female figures contemplated an interior space at dusk, in repose on couches, in the bath or perhaps standing by a window, while her Shadow of A Doubt series in 2009 introduced a noir-ish atmosphere of tension and contemplation between a male and female figure. Her Sporthorse show in 2011 was a series of portraits of horses – an example of Keeling’s highly regraded equine art – but for The Blue Room she has returned to the human figure.

In their quotation of Hopper – and the quality of their photographic source – The Blue Room has a remarkable psychological tension – and distinct feeling of voyeuristic observation.
