Rebecca Keller’s oil paintings are distinct images that stand alone, but make up a body of work that together begins to tell a story inviting the viewer to be a participant in articulating a narrative for themselves. The philosopher Emil Kant said that how we perceive objects or phenomena are not the things in themselves but what he called ‘noumena.’ They exist independently. Each painting is a kind of snapshot taken as a veil is pulled aside to provide a glimpse of the thing itself. The artist is a Connecticut native. She received her B.A. with honors from Hartwick College in Oneonta New York, and her M.A.Ed. from the Hartford Art School at the University of Hartford. Artist and instructor at both the secondary and college level, she continues to explore and develop her personal vocabulary in her oil paintings. She is a member of Connecticut Women Artists and the Connecticut Academy of Fine Arts, her work has been juried into numerous exhibitions, most recently to be published in Artist Talk Magazine Issue #19 April 2022 / Priscilla in Red.
Keller’s paintings are currently exhibited at Spectrum Gallery in Centerbrook, Connecticut.
