Maxine Keenan Scottish , b. 1999

Maxine Keenan a Glasgow based Contemporary known for her soft graphite and pastel drawings. Keenan Graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 2020, mid- pandemic. However, despite a disrupted graduation Keenan has continued to go from strength to strength, showing across the country and internationally with a group show in Thailand this month. Using therapeutic tones and gradients, her drawings present little context to lived-in imagery. They exist as tangible memories, just on the cusp of familiarity. The empty armchairs and drooping flowers hint at the overlooked and mundane aspects of existence.
