Keane: Pop Tarot in Palazzo Pancrazi

The mysteries of Tarot explored in mysterious Barga - an exhibition by Keane in Barga Vecchia

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 Pop Tarot Paintings,” now open for viewing at the Palazzo Pancrazi in Barga Vecchia. The “Pop” […]

Italy is still in the grip of a recession – a period of temporary economic decline during which trade and industrial activity are reduced, generally identified by a fall in GDP in two successive quarters, for some time now and according to the official ISTAT figures, youth unemployment is now at a staggering 36.90 percent […]

The Tarot card paintings

Work in progress by Keane based on the The Tarot of Marseille restored by Philippe Camoin and Alexandre Jodorowsky

Over the past thirty years Keane has been making images based on culture and events here in Barga  – The Biroldo paintings, The Duomo of Barga paintings, The Nuns of Barga and  The walls of Barga were just five of those local based projects. Four times during those thirty years he also started to make images and work about […]

#loveproject – 18 paintings given to Pisa

#loveproject – 18 paintings given to Pisa

The plan, says Keane, is to “place two paintings from each of us in five of the most important piazzas of Tuscany’s five most important cities: Florence, Siena, Livorno, Pisa and Lucca. Anyone who wants them can take them away, at no cost. Absolutely free.”

The first of the #loveproject paintings were installed in the first Tuscan city which gave their patronage to the project – the City of Pisa. As can be seen from the image above, the major piazza’s of the city were host (for a least a limited time) to a series of paintings from Fabrizio Da Prato […]

Keane: Finished Biroldo paintings

Keane: Finished Biroldo paintings

Keane, irlandese di nascita, vive e viaggia nel mondo fino al 1985 quando arriva in Garfagnana su un sidecar e non se ne va più. Prova per la prima volta il biroldo quando era ancora vegetariano e lo assaggia senza dire di no ad un prodotto locale a cui si è affezionato così intimamente da […]

More or less for the whole of the winter Keane has been working in the studio on a series of paintings for a project which runs under the name of the #loveproject. That series of fifty paintings based upon biroldo is now officially finished and this weekend the biroldo panels were taken out of the studio in Barga Vecchia and […]

Keane: Biroldo and the #loveproject

Quite a few people have pointed out that the amount of articles on barganews.com have diminished somewhat over the past three months or so.  We are still in the quieter winter season here in Barga so some of that reduced “noise” is logical but also at the same time those of you connected to social networks will […]
