Artist Jill Keller Peters is a colorist whose abstract color-field oil paintings communicate ideas through color. By juxtaposing pure and vivid hues that speak to each other when combined, Keller Peters choreographs rhythm and space through a poetic visual language. Her geometric abstract work is informed by keen observations of nature and years of realist landscape painting and photography. Utilizing a full-spectrum radiance of light, which is both, practical and inspirational, her traditional oil on canvas paintings delight the senses while celebrating light as the source of all energy and sustenance for life.
