This painting is part of Warren Keating's signature series of aerial portraits. The work was inspired by video footage that he captured while visiting the Jemez Pueblo during a Feast Day celebration. Dancer in ceremonial dress in bright mid-day light. Pixelated and loose style of brushwork referencing video stills and digital surveillance. Simplified color palette blurring representation with abstracted expressionism.

Getting to Know Warren

Warren Keating's paintings start with documentation. He captures subjects on video from birds-eye views, digitizes the film on his computer and, finally, paints them on canvas in an active style he describes as Pixel Impressionism. He merges artistic elements of the 20th Century with 21st Century technology. Warren credits Futurism as well as Richard Diebenkorn and Willem de Kooning as influences in his paintings. Fun fact: Warren’s inspiration for this series came from a vacation to Paris where he photographed passersby from his hotel balcony in Saint-Germain-des-Prés.
