Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Ian McKeever (born 1946) is a British artist who has exhibited extensively both nationally and internationally. He began painting in 1968, following studies in English Literature in London, and in 1970 took his first studio at SPACE, St. Katherine's dock, London, an artists' initiative set up by Bridget Riley and Peter Sedgley. He is currently based in Dorset, Britain, and is Visiting Professor in Painting at the Faculty of Art and Architecture at the University of Brighton, and Professor of Drawing at the Royal Academy School of Arts in London. In 2003 he was elected a Royal Academician. From the beginning, McKeever's interests were concerned with landscape and he began to incorporate painting panels with natural elements to create landscape installations. His first group exhibition was held in West Berlin in 1971, and this was soon followed by his first solo exhibition at Cardiff Arts Centre, which involved the combination of painted panels with rocks spilling onto the gallery floors. He was awarded his first Arts Council Bursary in 1973 and in that same year, held his first London solo exhibition at the Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA).show more
