Billy Keen
The mystery of life’s spiritual journey provides the inspiration for this body of Billy Keen’s work. Each composition uses mixed media of acrylic on wood panel with sculptural elements to encourage the viewer to interact with the image on an emotional level both physically and intellectually. The hand carved sculptural items in each composition reinforce the theme of nature in both the representative component and its abstract surrounding. The resulting dialogue between the materials of wood, metal, bone, and ivory create a sense of history and ritual.
