Raoul De Keyser

Original Signed Artworks & Limited Edition Prints For Sale

A painter of the abstract vein, Raoul De Keyser’s work employed traditional materials; his earliest outputs were acrylic on paper, before he eventually switched to oil on canvas in the 1970’s. His work focuses on simplicity and the ability to convey reality in a heightened, exaggerated form through a combination of abstraction and representation – often depicting the mundane, De Keyser would feature everyday items such as door handles and garden hoses in his work.
 
« I don't want to become the 'pretty' painter …
Ultimately I want to paint ruthlessly »

Raoul De Keyser
De Keyser has cited Al Held as one of his earliest influences, and he has since gone on to become part of the New Vision movement, led by fellow artist Roger Raveel.
 
« But while the paintings are distinguished by a moment of mnemonic recurrence, the referentiality remains strangely inconclusive, since one cannot tell what the model refers to. »
Raoul De Keyser


In his later works, De Keyser often used a monochrome base as a foundation, over which he would often layer muted tones to create simple lines, shapes and grids – Drift is one of his most famous works of this kind and captures the essence of his art quite simply but succinctly.

What is Gestural?

What is Gestural?

Gestural is a term which describes painting with freely sweeping brush strokes. The main goal of gestural art was to allow the artist to physically portray emotional impulses. Viewers were thought to understand inner artistic thoughts revealed through the varied, yet expressive paint marks.
