Welcome to Keith B McCulloch Fine Art
Landscape has always fascinated me. As a child I watched elephants morph into funny faces in the clouds; those changing shapes and colors were always amusing to see and admire. To this day I am still fascinated and awed with how changing light can reveal and dramatize the forms of nature.
In the attempt to portray such drama I do get caught up in the joy and discoveries of manipulating my oil paint, this wonderful thick viscous media that can make so many different kinds of marks. To me it is always a miracle to see how a mark on a surface can somehow assume a dual role: first as a descriptive note within the pictorial space, and secondly, as textural presence of the artist. There is always a play between using the mark as abstract element, and using it as a descriptive tool.
