They were painted in solitude and created out of chaos and social breakdown. They transcend their existential nature by helping us understand what we went through.When we are finally able to look back, I suspect they will come to be regarded as one of the most important and singular records of the lockdown. Perhaps of more significance is the fact that they are thirty paintings of great beauty in which we can recognise our own inner feelings and take joy from that. What Degas once said of Manet also applies to Geoffrey Key.
He was more important than we realised. Geoffrey Key is without doubt one of the most important Northern Artist, and is now coveted by many as the Greatest Living Northern Artist. He is now a world wide brand with his stunning works featuring around the globe. Was born in Manchester in 1941.Attending Manchester's High School of Art, he progressed in 1958 to degree and post graduate studies at the Manchester Regional College of Art. Successful studies lead to a post graduate scholarship in sculpture, and the award of the Heywood medal in Fine Art and the Guthrie Travelling Scholarship. Now in his sixth decade as an artist, Geoffrey Key's painting style is instantly recognisable; almost a unique blend of early twentieth century avant garde with modern twenty-first century observation. His colour palette has developed over time, from muted tones, to the vibrant use of colour he is now so well known for. Geoffrey Key has had numerous solo exhibitions and is regarded as one of the most important and striking artists working in the UK today. Geoffrey Key's works are held in international private collections, and can be seen in many UK public collections, including The Manchester Art Gallery, Salford Art Gallery, National Art Library and the Victoria and Albert Museum.
