Notes

Keane's work draws inspiration from memory. Using various ink fillled containers he creates abstract gestural landscapes and seascapes from inks and oil paints. He allows the paint to flow over the top of the paper, saturating the surface with movement. File contains newspaper clippings, press releases and a catalogue with images of artist's work.
