At Colourfield Gallery in Poynton, Cheshire, we are proud to have made a name for ourselves as specialists in Northern Art. This is the term used to describe works of 20th century artists who portray the life, scenes and urban, industrial environs of the North West of England. First brought to prominence in the works of the LS Lowry, this school of art captures the factories, mills and working class in this landscape. Formerly thought of as grim, bleak and lacking in beauty, today, the works of the Northern artists portrays the essentially humane spirit that lies beneath the facade.
For art enthusiasts in Poynton, Geoffrey Key paintings have distinctive, strong, dynamic yet dreamlike figures. Painter and sculptor, Geoffrey Key is from Rusholme, Manchester. His career spans an amazing half a century and his works feature in public, private and corporate collections across the globe. He has represented the country in prestigious events and exhibitions in Europe, America, Australia and Asia. Several books and articles are about him and his work. His creations show his individualist, detailed expression of form, light and colour. Further, he focused on the Derbyshire landscape, especially the Whiteley Nab Hill. He also worked as an art teacher in a school. Additionally, his travels did influence the nature, texture, colours and forms of his works.
In the current pandemic situation, Geoffrey Key paintings in Poynton reflect the despair, fear and isolation that people feel. Some of his most popular paintings feature clowns and horses which, ironically, hark back to childhood fears. The bold use of colour, skilled draughtsmanship, use of light and texture and brilliant imagination set his work apart. He believes in the constant quest for new and different aspects in his work.
