Following a year of creative experimentation and marking a
major transition in technique, leading mid-career Melbourne
based artist Ash Keating’s new series expands the physical
and psychological complexity of his work.
These stunning new works have been formed by the application
and manipulation of countless layers of media, including
pigments, perlite, mica flakes, paint and water.
Their surfaces hold an intense depth and richness and their appearance
changes depending on the light and angle from which they
are viewed. The series has a meditative quality that invites
slow and reflective viewing. Created as an antidote to
isolation and anxiety, the works encourage reconnection,
reflection and solace.
