Signal Arts Centre is delighted to present a solo exhibition by artist Ian Keaveny. Ian graduated from Winchester School of Art with a BA (Honours) in fine art painting and print making. His work has been shown in various group shows in England and Ireland.


De Chirico said “one must find the demon in everything” and “one must discover the eye in everything”.  Ian collect’s old toys, discarded things, and listens to what they have to say to him, trying to find the demon and the story within them, the process of collection triggering themes based on his childhood and experience of growing up with the feeling off being an observer and outsider disconnected from the mainstream of society, a feeling which stays with him to this day.


Keaveny makes stage sets on which he allows his imagination and the objects collected, to act out their dramas based on an enquiry into his own past or that which the objects suggest the paintings are a record of these plays.

Opening Reception: Thursday 1st March 7p.m 9p.m
