Calypso Keane

Chelsea College of Arts

Keane has been developing a technique that uses paint and inkjet-photo-transfer to suggest characteristics of water, such as reflection, refraction, fluidity and illusion. She feels that “in this continuously moving way, water is nothing more than the reflections and refractions of its surroundings; it knows no boundary between the trees and the sky, or you and the person standing next to you.” Keane is drawn to textures that suggest water and is influenced by how water is digitally simulated. She states; “we can learn from water’s reflections to see the world from a different, more fluid and continuous perspective. To moisten the way we think and lubricate those tight structures that construct our reality.”
