BEN KEATING was born in Brooklyn, New York; he lives in Brooklyn, New York and works between Mana Contemporary, New Jersey and Brooklyn, New York.
One of the first art books I bought as an art student was H.H. Arnasons handsome volume on Robert Motherwell. (Ive always admired Motherwells keen graphic sensibility synthesized with his particular painterly eloquence, as well as his life as an intellectual/artist who simultaneously embraced the co-existence of solitude and cosmopolitanism.) The following is a selection of works that reaffirmed my memory, with on-the-spot thoughts written as an homage to the artist.
