ASH KEATING



Stripping consumerism back to reveal the emptyness within, Ash Keating continues to deconstruct everyday reality, be it free newspapers or vinyl advertising thinly disguised as art. Ash's work is magpie-meticulous and obsessive having used newspapers a number of times in previous exhibitions, creating sculptures and wallpaper from thousands of identical layered images. The Platform work was an intervention of free MX newspapers that were diverted last year and shown on the same days 12 months later to demonstrate the environmental and mental waste generated via commuters in a 5-day period.
