Keith Morant - Ars Longa
Keith Morant will display his work Ars Longa. He comments about the exhibition and creative process, When first invited to submit work for the International Florence Biennale, I was naturally elated, but at the same time I was somewhat concerned as to what I should paint. I began thinking of Italy and of that country’s great history, especially the Renaissance. I had recently been to New York and visited the wonderful collection of 16th and 17th century Masters at the Metropolitan Museum Of Art. When viewing them I realised that this was the key – especially the religiosity inherent to the triptych. I wanted to express something that imparted an awareness of history and art yet simultaneously allude to the transience and illusions that humanity is constantly subject to.
