Through abstract paintings that burst forth from the canvas in an exquisitely composed cacophony of color and form, Zachary Keeting grapples with the complexity of the world. As he describes: “I see the world as an incredibly complex place, a baffling / gorgeous / brutal environment. Over the years, I've increasingly attempted to emulate that richness in the pictures, to participate in it.” References to such movements as Op Art, Geometric and Gestural Abstraction, Color Field Painting, and Pop Art inflect his compositions, shaped by an intensely physical process in which he builds up and breaks down the marks on his canvas. Keeting’s earlier works followed what he calls “jigsaw logic,” with hard-edged shapes structured into loosely rigid patterns. His recent work is looser and lush, filled with fat, gestural brushstrokes, stains, smears, and drips, unfolding across the picture plane.
