Artist Statement Revised

Kevin Keane is a contemporary artist studying at The College of New Jersey soon to receive his degree as a BFA in digital arts. With his primary media being digital photography, much of his work is captured by photo manipulation. One of his more recent works is a series of digital prints titled, “Me, Myself, and I,” portrays the struggle between ones consciousness.
In this self-portrait he depicts himself two times in the photo representing polar opposites. Justice, one of the photographs in the series, takes a comical view of this conflict of the mind and presents it in a rudimentary level. Keane plays on the Wild West and is characterized as good, the sheriff and protector of what is right, and as evil, a bandit with the mal intent to rob society. What seems somewhat hokey on the surface really has a substantial artistic value and well developed conceptuality.
