Black Maps III

2017-2019

About

"Black Maps III" is a flurry of black, blue, green, and white brushstrokes outlining the suggestion of a tree whipped about by a winter storm. Keenan Derby's energetic and rapid brushwork emphasizes the dynamism of this abstract landscape and reinvigorates the viewer. This work painting is made of oil, pastel, marking leads, and shellac ink on linen panel. Keenan Derby’s highly textured paintings are in perpetual motion. Working in a variety of media, Derby’s technique lifts the paint off each piece’s surface as he negotiates intention and material, embracing the unpredictable physical properties of his medium. Cosmic cycles, objects in motion, tidal patterns, and ancient overgrown temples and tombs all provide inspiration for the raw energy captured in his work. His paintings have a transitional nature, simultaneously constructing and breaking down forms as the eye travels across each piece, never quite settling on a single state of being. Keenan Derby is an Atlanta, GA native, currently living and working in Los Angeles, California. In addition to studying at the International School of Painting, Drawing and Sculpture, Montecastello di Vibio in Italy, Derby received his MFA from Boston University and graduated Cum Laude with a BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art. He has exhibited in galleries nationally, including Craig Krull Gallery in Santa Monica, CA, Trestle Gallery in Brooklyn, NY, and at the 2017 Art Market San Francisco art fair. He specializes in painting with acrylic, sand, and oil, and his work is included in a number of private collections across the country. Derby is represented by Abigail Ogilvy Gallery in Boston, MA.
