Ash Keating: Gravity System Response - Art Collector

Ash Keating, GSR90, 2018. ACRYLIC AND WATER ON CANVAS, 250 X 300CM. Courtesy: the artist and Fox Jensen McCrory, Auckland

The works which fall under the title ‘Gravity System Response’ in Ash Keating’s practice, are linked, in part to the manner in which these grand paintings are made – a voluble descent of pigment, forming streams and cascades, rivulets and spumes in a process that Keating drives but is also fed by gravity and material themselves.

Keating is something of an action painter though more Morris Louis and Pat Steir than Pollock and Klein. Using a profoundly wet process Keating adds and then removes great washes of colour, much of it ending up on the floor. Yet what remains are heroic scaled canvases, ranging from intensely coloured torrents to ethereal traces of colour and gesture.
The artist will be present.
