Keane, Tina

“Tina Keane works with an expanded vision of moving image, making participatory installations, expanded monitor video sculptures, performance and mixed media, and film. Her work is imbued with a feminist aesthetic, the politics of femaleness, gender, and sexuality are inherent, and woven throughout. These ideas have led Keane’s experiment with many different mediums and changing technologies, from painting with pure light, site related neon, sound, performance, to film and video.” – J.Hatfield
