“Bold Discourse” is a compelling diptych by Gina Keatley that visually articulates the dynamics of communication and interaction within the abstract medium. Each square canvas measures 24 inches by 24 inches and together they form a conversation piece rich in texture and contrast. Created in 2024 and showcased in New York, NY, this set exemplifies Keatley’s mastery in capturing the essence of dialogue through art.

The artwork features bold, sweeping black strokes that cut across each panel, serving as the backbone of this visual exchange. These strokes are complemented by an array of splatters and marks, which seem to scatter across the canvas like words in a heated discussion. The background, a subdued mix of gray and off-white, highlights the foreground’s dramatic elements, ensuring that the viewer’s focus is drawn to the energetic interactions represented by the contrasting dark lines.

“Bold Discourse” is not just an exploration of abstract expressionism but a reflection on the nature of communication itself—fragmented, layered, and often chaotic. Each canvas is unique, offering a glimpse into the push and pull of conversational flow, captured in the permanence of acrylic. This piece invites viewers to delve into the complexities of discourse, where every mark and stroke contributes to a larger narrative of interaction and expression.
