Stephen Keeney | Recent Paintings

25 Jun - 8 Aug 2020
Stephen Keeney is an artist who pushes the bounds of contemporary art through wild, expansive multi-media works

Presenting his first solo show at Tayloe Piggott Gallery, this body of work features fourteen paintings, that captures the breadth of Stephen Keeney’s capabilities as a painter. Four massive canvases, one cool and sparse, another pulsing and warm, build upon more intimately scaled works on paper that appear like igneous Chinese ink drawings. Each of these paintings speaks to the viewer in its own clear voice, however, when presented together, the viewer quickly recognizes the same deep place of physical materiality and process-based experimentation that reverberates from piece to piece.
