"Key combines skill with his innovative and personal language to produce a generosity to form, elegance of movement and richness of colour and tone."

"Key can make a magical scene in which figures belong to the communal world of each other. They radiate an intimacy which does not come from a direct or literary portrayal."

Sunday Business Post Dublin


"First impressions of Geoffrey Key’s work reveal confidence, dedication, purpose and sincerity. More exciting than Baroque and placing Picasso in time perspective, he conveys a classical quality with no question of imitation. His images are uncompromisingly commanding andhe has a penetrating vision, which allows him to strip away the facades and expose the true meaning of his subject."
