Poss Keech dreams in colours, For her, colour is everything; in food, in her garden, in clothing, in art. Growing up in the bush was a formative experience for Poss. From the family home in Turramurra [north of Sydney] she would run each afternoon through the bush to Bobbin Head and later, when the family moved to a cattle property near Tamworth, Poss became a true ‘country girl’.
Bush landscapes and the desert colours inform Poss’s work, but her love of animals and abstraction are also recurring themes. Eclectic is probably an apt descriptor for the variety of media, subjects and styles evident in her work. Despite her passion for colour, she often chooses the discipline of a restricted or neutral palette; but next minute she breaks out. Poss says she hasn’t yet settled on a single style – she sees her art very much still a work in progress.
