A curatorial, consultancy and project management platform for contemporary art.
Elevation is a solo exhibition of paintings by Melbourne-based artist Ash Keating. Collectively titled Elevated Horizon Response, this
interconnected series of large-scale panoramic paintings are inspired
by Keating’s memory and photographic documentation of the landscape,
horizons, and weather patterns observed from an elevated viewpoint on
Yorta Yorta Country / the Goulburn Valley.
Keating has a
distinctive approach for creating artworks of atmospheric compositions.
Since 2015, his most recognisable investigations of pure abstract and
spontaneous gestures have developed as a style referred to as Gravity System Response paintings. For Elevation,
Keating has challenged this style and expanded his practice by drawing
from his own experiences, memories, and photographs of being surrounded
by nature. Edging towards abstraction, yet with the visibility of a
continuous horizon line, this series is the closest his work has felt to
resembling the landscape of a place.
