Mount Tabor Ecumenical Centre for Art & Spirituality Villa Via Sacra, Barga, Italy

I have come to see that my work as an artist is described best as seeking connections to our past. For over fifty years I have worked in a sequence of multiple series of paintings and prints that related to archaeology findings, geological forms, early languages, musical scores, ancient illuminations and the history of art.

Hamish Moore: The Barga vanga paintings

Hamish Moore plays in Palazzo Pancrazi as the exhibition closes

  The latest exhibition by Keane, 10 paintings in lacquered oil mounted back-to-back in the lobby of Palazzo Pancrazi, is an eloquent study in the suggestive complexity of simple objects. 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 […]

Friends

Friends

as anyone who spends any length of time here knows normal and tedious do not enter into our vocabulary and I could not list all of the amazing people who call me their friend there are just too many and each as important as the other.

One of the main reasons for choosing to live here is our friends, and we count ourselves very lucky to have so many wonderful people that we can call friends. Barga is a very special cosmopolitan place, a vortex to enable and develop great local and global friendships. I consider myself so fortunate to have […]

Duomo of Barga icon exhibition closing

The exhibition of paintings about the 212 bas relief figures on the Duomo in Barga closes this week in the Palazzo Pancrazi in Barga Vecchia

There are few, if any, churches in Western Europe to rival Barga’s Duomo for sheer provocative mystery. From its near-cubist architecture to its peculiar relationship with a distant mountain arch, the great marble edifice overlooking the Serchio Valley is an encyclopedia of questions that yield few unambiguous answers. Now comes the painter Keane, who has been […]
