This is the chemistry that animates “The Barga  Tarot Paintings,” at the Palazzo Pancrazi in Barga Vecchia. Keane has painted magnified portraits of the […]

the exhibition in Palazzo Pancrazi in Barga Vecchia will be open daily until July 12th

Mixed Media adds a full range of tools to my pallet, allowing me to explore beyond the boundaries that separate and connect them all. For example, some of my paintings are also print and collage, even sculpture at times, and vice- versa. The idea dictates the techniques, the processes and medium used to express meaning […]

Six oil paintings on vertical metal panels – all reminiscent of the Barga Pop Tarot paintings from 2016 (article here)  with black outlines and limited colouring. The symbolism found on some early tarot cards led many people to believe that tarot cards were in fact the expression of ancient streams of wisdom… the eternal, esoteric […]

Arte In Sala   A menu should tease the senses, especially smell and taste. however, when artworks and artistic photographs of mouthwatering dishes are added, sight becomes involved as well, as do the hearts and souls of viewer and creator.

Keane – The Barga shrine paintings

Keane – The Barga shrine paintings

It is sometimes very difficult to explain the reason behind making a particular series of paintings as the actual original reasons can be many and varied. Such is the case with the latest work -the Barga shrine paintings, but basically there were probably three main inputs to start this particular work.

Number one In July of 2014, a young motorcyclist, Fabio Aprili from Pieve Fosciana, lost his life after losing control of his Ducati motorcycle on a bend of the main road at the bottom of the valley at Acquabona. Ever since then there has been a bunch of plastic flowers attached to the guard rail […]

Their immediate subject is the “vanga,” the traditional spade used by Tuscan peasants since time immemorial to turn their soil. Viewed from a variety of […]
