Ash Keating

Duality (Aerial #6)

Melbourne-born visual artist Ash Keating has exhibited extensively in galleries and has created numerous large-scale, site-responsive art projects in Australia and internationally since 2004. Duality is a return to the way Keating made his first paintings on canvas – inspired by aerial landscapes and experimenting with oil and paint washes to build texture.

During lockdown he started experimenting with other textures and mark making and in this work has embedded peculiar materials into the paints and binders such as perlite, vermiculite, mica flakes and reflective glass beads to create the works evocative surface. Inspiration for his paintings came from his personal experiences of witnessing aerial landscapes out of the window of his grandmother’s Cessna 150 (a two seater aviation plane).

Duality (Aerial #6) is part of the Home Art Collection

At Home, we believe in the power of art. The Home Art Collection is created to enrich our spaces and the lives of our residents. Featuring the diverse stories and perspectives of emerging and established Australian artists, the collection includes painting, sculpture, photography, and digital art both commissioned and acquired. Designed to create moments of reflection, beauty, and inspire curiosity and conversation, the Home Art Collection, like a well-curated home, will grow and evolve over time.
Located in some of Melbourne and Sydney’s most desirable neighbourhoods, our expanding portfolio of rental communities gives us a platform to build a unique Australian collection. Developed by Home and our curatorial collaborator Craft, the Home Art Collection will be supported by a dynamic in-building art program that will include artist talks, events, masterclasses, and workshops.
