"A graduate of the Royal College of Art in London, Keenleyside has been celebrated for his masterful ability to manipulate perspective and depth of field in a very personal and always recognizable way. The artist’s source of inspiration are the landscapes of his family home in Essex, including the banks of the River Thames and the woods that he played in as a child. These two sites prompted the artist to dwell on the ontological understanding of place. (...) His desire to experiment with formalism and materials enables him to convey his visual and emotional experience to the viewer. He portrays the surrounding landscape not in its natural form but with his polychromatic, dreamlike vision.
Keenleyside has exhibited in numerous exhibitions in the United Kingdom, Denmark, the United States and Italy. Works by the artist are in major collections such as the Boc group, Comme de Garcons, Hiscox plc, Mario Testino, Amlyn Collection, Marsh McLennan, RCA Collection, and TI Group."
