Welcome to the
work of Billy Keen

The act of making art tells me what it is trying to say. While much of it may be esoteric, I trust the beholder with the “correct” interpretation. The works are about transcendence. They explore the tension between beauty and fragility, between our reptilian brain and our higher thinking, between fate, faith and free will. They combine the representational, the abstract and the sculptural. Objects are created, painted, or found. Combined, they become parts of a visual vocabulary exploring the life journey or spiritual pathway.
