Sommer Sequence, paintings by Mark Keffer
On view at Arts Collinwood Gallery – Friday, August 12 – Sunday,Â September 3
Opening Reception – Friday, August 12,
Mark Keffer is an artist who lives and works in the Cleveland area. This award-winning painter has shown his thought-provoking and quietly beautiful work at numerous shows locally, nationally and internationally.
His current paintings to be featured at Arts Collinwood, are influenced by the work of pioneering Ohio modernistÂ William Sommer (1867-1949).
I use altered elements from his paintings to create layers of imagery â€” essentially employing a system of successive improvisations. I follow in the wake of his explorations â€” his quest for the eternal â€” but I do so in a way that adheres to my own sensibility. Iâ€™m interested in where ourÂ sensibilities overlap. ~Mark Keffer
