About Keith's work

Keith Farquhar uses the idea of the consumerist readymade, particularly clothing, to subvert our idea of what art can be. His sculptural work is provocative, humorous and audacious but it has an underlying serious endeavour that probes the essence of visual display, gender politics and art historical conventions such as his ‘reframing’ of the female nude.
