Arusha Gallery is delighted to announce it will present a large new collection of works by British artist Charlotte Keates at PULSE Contemporary Art Fair, Miami Beach this December. The Kennedy Trip will comprise nearly 50 vivid paintings of 1960s and 70s-inspired houses, lush palm trees and placid swimming pools — depictions loosely based on a set of Kodak slides documenting the holiday of an American family in the 1960s.
Keates’s paintings echo the aesthetic of vintage Florida and California, with a nod to modern mid-century design and interiors. They range from small pieces to large diptychs (up to 2m wide) and are in high demand by worldwide collectors, frequently selling out at exhibitions and art fairs. This long-awaited showing at Miami PULSE will retain Keates’s trademark combination of delicate pencil lines, textural sections of heavily dabbed paint, and ﬂuid passages of loose brushstrokes.
