Italy is said to be the birthplace of the tarot, which according to playing-card historians was originally a card game invented in the fifteenth century.
A series of paintings by Keane which were installed in the new Bistro at the Locanda di Mezzo in Barga Vecchia back in 2016 (article here) have now been moved into the Palazzo Pancrazi in Barga Vecchia. Tarot cards in Barga Barga, in it’s heyday, was a stronghold of The Medici’s Florence. Against the often […]

di Vagli son, a Vagli son nato, meglio morir che lascià il Pennato
There have been many visitors to Keane’s studio in Barga Vecchia over the past six months (some of them can be seen here) – they have been arriving to see for themselves how the latest work based on rock engravings and the pennati – the bill hooks, are progressing. A whole series of new canvases […]
And though Keane’s work may be founded in Barga, its depth and resonance reaches far beyond the boundaries of this small and very beautiful city.
I first met the artist Keane quite by chance while enjoying a morning coffee at Aristodemo Casciani’s bar – known as Aristo’s – in Barga’s Piazza Salvi. It is remarkable how slowly the world turns under a hot Tuscan sun and striking up conversations with strangers is part of what breathes life into these medieval […]
The OXO collection gallery in Barga Vecchia is it not just simply a series of wall spaces for completed work but is also promoting new work which will be exhibited outside of the gallery.
Part of the gallery space has now been turned over to a series of artist in residence who can experiment and produce work firmly in the public eye thanks to the position of the gallery in the main piazza in Barga Vecchia. The first artist in residence has been Fabrizio Da Prato who has been […]
The newly opened Oxo Collection Gallery in Barga Vecchia commissioned an event based on literature, art and music all centered around one small book - Invisible Cities by Italo Calvino.
The book “Le Città Invisibili” – Invisible Cities by Italo Calvino explores imagination and the imaginable through the descriptions of cities by an explorer, Marco Polo. It is framed as a conversation between the aging and busy emperor Kublai Khan, who constantly has merchants coming to describe the state of his expanding and vast empire, […]
The mysteries of Tarot explored in mysterious Barga - an exhibition by Keane in Barga Vecchia - article by Frank Viviano
Setting, subject and artist are the three interlocked components of a compelling art exhibition. It would be difficult to find a more perfect example than the trio of Barga, Tarot and Keane. This is the chemistry that animates “The Barga Tarot Paintings,” at the Palazzo Pancrazi in Barga Vecchia. Keane has painted magnified portraits of the […]
5 artists for the whole of August at the Gallery in Piazza Angelio in Barga Vecchia. Michaela Kasparova | Dante Cozzi | Zivile Karalaityte | Lago | Adriano Tolomei
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 […]
A "pop up" exhibition of work this week in the Palazzo Pancrazi in Barga Vecchia by Keane
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 […]
