Ian McKeever is an English artist who works in abstract painting, printmaking and analog photography. His career as an artist began in 1969 after earning a degree in English Literature. McKeever early work combined his interests of landscape imagery and painting, often featuring a technique of painting over a photograph. In the late 1980s and throughout the 90s however, his pieces marked a departure from this format towards a greater emphasis on abstract painting. In terms of subject, his work from this era often engaged with architecture and the human body, as well as the role of light in an abstract work. McKeever has also been featured in as well as published many essays and books, including his essays titled In Praise of Painting, Absolute Light, and Thinking about Georgie O’Keeffe.
