'Against the Open Sky' is part of Felicity Keefe's Ghost Tree Series, which begins with a digital photograph. It is subsequently visually manipulated online to create a monotone print. This forms the basis of the work, which is then placed onto handmade paper and worked into with ink, paint, pencil and pastel. Each pice is unique but forms a series with the other works to capture a sense of time and place.
Felicity's work is inspired by states of flux, the change from day into night, summer into winter, outward into inward. The River paintings have both an environmental and a metaphorical meaning, depicting the essence of the River as it is effected by the changes in seasons and time, but they also describe an inner state of movement, flow and division.

Felicity Keefe has exhibited in galleries throughout the UK, abroad in Stockholm, Amsterdam, Paris and Singapore, and at all of London’s major Art Fairs. Her contemporary landscape pieces are inspired by her experience of the British landscape as it changes and reacts to seasons, weather and time. She is also inspired by a blending of traditional landscape, literature and personal mythology which form an inner narrative within each series. Her work is distinctive for it's sense of atmosphere, often brooding, but also starkly beautiful. Felicity currently lives and works in Bath.
