Vincent Keele Fine Art I create fine art paintings on canvas by using acrylic paints, that envoke good feelings and mindful thoughts.
Each paintings is a portal that create a metaphysical realm where every thought and action is balanced by its counterpart. Within this infinite expanse, I’ve created a harmonious space where cognitive thought, directed energy and the immeasurable meet analytical thinking. Each artwork is brought to life through bold delightful flowing lines with luminous color. Becoming one with the fractal allows me to transcend the 2D space where I can expand, retract and exist. Once connected with thought and energy I begin to harness the feeling. My actions of applying acrylic paint create energy around me as I shift and circle the canvas rhythmically. Bringing to visual life the internal fight and harmony of Yin and Yang. I am interested in awakening cognitive thought, harnessing creative energy and to research the limits of universal thinking.
