Raoul De Keyser

Raoul De Keyser, No Title (8 Verticals/6), 2010, oil on canvas mounted on wood, 11 x 8".

THE WORK OF RAOUL DE KEYSER, although informal and abstract, comes across to me as extremely personal, highly specific, and fully based on Raoul’s own interiorized visual experience of the reality around him. In this sense, Raoul, for me, resonates as the painter for painters that Albert Marquet once was.
