“Ascendant Forum” is a compelling piece from Gina Keatley’s “Bone” series, depicted on a square canvas measuring 48 inches by 48 inches. This artwork, created in 2024, embodies the series’ thematic exploration of underlying structures and the resilience of the human spirit. The canvas features a dominant, dark crack that boldly slices through its center, symbolizing the fractures and healing within our lives. This visual fissure serves as a central axis, around which the textured surface and subdued palette swirl in an evocative dance of concealment and revelation.

Employing acrylic mediums, Keatley enhances the tactile depth of the artwork, with a technique that involves layering and meticulously scraping away paint, revealing glimpses of buried hues. This method introduces a temporal dimension, suggesting the passage of time and the sedimentation of experiences.

Displayed in New York, NY, “Ascendant Forum” stands as a unique and profound expression within the “Bone” series. It invites viewers to delve into a dialogue with the piece, encouraging them to contemplate the foundational elements of their own lives and the inherent strength found in vulnerability and reconstruction.
