My artwork is informed by my life experiences and my deep feeling of being connected with nature.
Themes resulting from this include ecological concerns, feminist values, questioning what is important in life, and healing.
I use a wide range of media, spanning sculpture, moving image, photography, performance, sound and vocal improvisation, and combinations of these.
Quite often my work suggests a narrative. I draw on the human affinity to rituals, sometimes using symbolism from the mythical of different cultures. I am also inspired by organic forms in the natural world.
Bibo Keeley – BA(Hons) first class (Gray’s School of Art, Aberdeen, Scotland)
“…the best work makes a virtue of variety. Bibo Keeley makes haunting sound works …and has made an impressive set of sculptures from a deconstructed piano…” – The Scotsman, Art review: Gray’s School of Art Aberdeen Degree Show 2019
“In terms of modern Scottish and British Feminist art, Keeley’s work builds upon a platform raised by eminent artists such as Jenny Saville, Kate Davis and Alison Watt.” – Prof. Amy Bryzgel, The University of Aberdeen (2015)
“unflinching photographs” –The Scotsman (2015)
“…a Viking ship made by Bibo. The ship looks as if it is bound for Valhalla, but the little box nestling in its hull contains – not ashes – but sand from their favourite shore. It’s a quiet, but potent reminder of what could have been; but wasn’t.” – The Scotsman (2015)
“optimistic, personal, educational and aesthetically wonderful” Aberdeen Voice (2015)
