Although renowned for his oil paintings of swimming pools, and lone figures, Belgian artist Jan Keteleer has recently shifted focus, injecting a sense of solitude into his latest works. While many artists have influenced his work over the years, his work has evoked an emotional response from his viewers in the form of narratives. For example, in Girl Diving Into Water, Jan Keteleer shows a similar subject floating against the sun-dappled pool floor, with the perimeter of the swimming pool out of view.
Jan Keteleer's paintings are photo realistic in style, and he describes them as "Contemporary Renaissance" work. His interest in the water began when he was traveling to Costa Brava, Spain. He is known for his paintings of women swimming and diving. His meditative approach to painting has led him to be compared to the painters of the Barbizon School and Hudson River School.
