Keogh’s acrylic paintings, done in a pastel color scale in a style reminiscent of both sign painting and decorative wallpaper, communicate several desires simultaneously while retaining a darkly romantic feeling. Caitlin Keogh has been marked by several respectable art publications in the last few months (Art in America, Artforum, and Cultured Magazine) as being a young artist to watch for the next several years. What sets the artist’s pieces apart from others is that they have the ability to communicate very directly through their graphic form, but the artist opts to use symbols that twist something within us rather than forcing something down the viewers’ throats. Keogh also works to give her pieces compositional complexity rather uncommon in acrylic paintings of this kind of style. What do you think of her work? Look through it below!
