di Vagli son, a Vagli son nato, meglio morir che lascià il Pennato

The work is based around graffiti, carvings and engravings of pennati in the rocks of the Apuan Alps – the mountain range between Barga and the sea. The Pennati – Latin falx arboraria is the typical instrument still used by woodcutters in this area, characterised by a short handle, a wide blade 30/40 cm long […]

Keane – Pop Tarot in Palazzo Pancrazi

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.

Keane – Celtic Life International article by Tom Langlands

Keane – Celtic Life International article by Tom Langlands

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 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 […]

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 […]
