Introduction Alison Keenan lived in Burma before returning home to England to complete her art education and later lived in Egypt and Italy. In 2008, Keenan graduated from Emily Carr University and in 2010 received a Certificate of Liberal Arts from SFU Her recent work includes a closer examination of fossilized trees and debris swept ashore along the Vancouver coastline. Keenan’s new paintings of one particular tree during a cold winter night cause the viewer to look upward and see it bare boned, alone, vulnerable and framed by the dark sky. Her portfolio includes collaborative exhibitions, curating group shows, an online catalogue, guest speaker, artist residencies, as well as artist’s talks and editing a gallery catalogue.
