Private View: John Keane - Twelve Selves
21 February, 6:00 – 8:00pm
John Keane, Twelve Selves, Selve Thirty Six, Oil and image transfer on linen, 2017
John Keane’s reputation as a political artist has been established through a sustained artistic inquiry into military and social conflicts around the world, from Northern Ireland to Central America and the Middle East, where he was commissioned as the Official British War Artist of the Gulf War. A new exhibition at Flowers Gallery, Cork Street, will focus on Keane’s most recent series of paintings, which centre on a single self-portrait image. The exhibition of paintings, many obscured and transformed with reactive metallic paints, examines the nature of self reflection, and how experience can inform our understanding of self.
Join us for the Private View of John Keane's Twelve Selves at Flowers Gallery, 21 Cork Street, London on Wednesday 21 February, 2018
