John Keane’s latest one-person show, Twelve Selves, will be open to the public at Flowers Cork Street on 21st February 2018.
An initial series of twelve paintings has morphed into nearly fifty defaced and seemingly decomposing self-portraits. He has used chemical processes to disrupt and obscure the surface of an existing self-portrait, “Fear No 1”. The resulting collection follows an existential journey influenced by the conceptual and material positions of late-19th and 20th century artists Warhol, Malevich and Magritte.
