Bibo Keeley - FREE AS A BIRD


I create sculptures and other artwork in a variety of media and techniques, often using natural materials, ceramic and found objects. My artwork deals with with nature, gender equality and the transience of life. It is informed by personal experience, natural forms and imagery of supernatural beliefs from different cultures.
I create temporary outdoor installations in places where I feel my artwork merges with the natural surroundings. I document these using photography and moving images.
