Arabella Kiszely

Arabella Kiszely is a Cotswold-based artist, specialising in semi-abstract landscapes. Painting mainly in oils, her pictures are characterised by a confident, contemporary style, full of colour and form, influenced by Matisse, Seago and the Scottish Colourists

Arabella’s technique is integral to her evocative style. She explains, “When painting these seascapes, I mix natural blues and greys with highly saturated yellows and oranges, aiming to create an ambiguity between abstraction and reality.” The result is a semi-abstract painting where you can feel, as well as see, the force of nature.

Her latest body of work is inspired by the poetry of Robert Frost and Kathleen Raine.
