“Abandoned Spaces” by Robert O. Keith IV

“In my current work, I borrow from abandoned spaces that are slowly being consumed by nature leaving them in a state of chaos and disorder. As I paint, I distort these spaces by curving, expanding, and stretching the dimensions across a flat surface to best display their natural beauty. I directly explore these spaces in depth which enables me to identify and connect with the mood of each structure.

“I work to bring out the rich, earthy colors and focus on intense contrasts to aid in conveying the temperatures and moods in each location. Through distortion, I am also able to drastically portray the gradual changes each space undergoes over time. It is my intention to showcase these unique and beautiful abandoned spaces so that they can be shared and enjoyed by everyone.”
