Ancient Memories – an Exhibition by Keane at the Oxo Gallery

Review by Frank Viviano

An Exhibition by Keane at the Oxo Gallery, Barga – August 1-15, 2019 Review by Frank Viviano Memory, in the barren language of conventional psychology, is simply “a faculty of the brain applied to the coding, storage and retrieval of data.” No wonder, then, that psychology’s numbing vocabulary (and mechanistic perspective) has been adopted whole […]

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.

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 […]
