Pajama Factory space

Keith Breitfeller drawing
exhibition
June 3 June 24, 2017

Keith Breitfeller‘s drawings are personal, casual works he creates , in his own words,“to entertain myself with”. Just like carefree summer days, Breitfeller’s drawings are fun, fast and allowed to evolve casually and spontaneously. Keith makes them in the evening, during downtime while unwinding. Keith studied with New York Artist Marion Pinto. The keystone of his methods was acquired at the Barnstone Studio, a renaissance type Master and Apprentice program. The heavy emphasis on the Golden Section and color theory continues to inform his work.
