Keith Thomson interview

Keith Thomson (b. 1965, New York, NY) is a painter who lives and works in Birmingham, Alabama. 

Where do you look for artistic inspiration?

I’ve lived in New York and Northern California and loved both. I’m currently stuck in Alabama for at least four years, when my youngest kid will be in college. It’s probably no coincidence that I’ve been painting scenes from New York and California.


 How would you like viewers to receive your work in this digital exhibition space?

Best-case scenario, the paintings provide a bit of escapism.

Do you have any goals or resolutions for your artistic practice in 2021?

To avoid getting oil paint in my eye again.
