Melbourne-born artist Ash Keating has exhibited extensively in galleries and created numerous large-scale, site-responsive art projects in Australia and internationally since 2004. Working across a conceptual, site-responsive and often collaborative art practice that incorporates painting, sculpture, installation, video and performance. Ash Keating has raised a wide range of social and environmental issues within his many projects and artworks, such as systems of production and consumption, climate change, urban sprawl and gentrification, and waste and sustainability. Frequently working beyond the gallery, and often harnessing community narrative and energy, Keating’s work also draws upon myth, ritual and ceremony.
In 2015 Carbon Arts curated three of Keating’s works into our exhibition Perceptive Power at the Design Hub, RMIT.
