Profile

Matthew Keenan

Photographer

Matthew Keenan is an artist and photographer currently living and working in Cardiff, South Wales. Before returning to education age 30 Matthew worked principally as a carpenter and a labourer in Wigan, Greater Manchester, a town in the North of England where he found it increasingly difficult to express himself. The current obsession with selfies is an important starting point to his practice, this has developed into using self-portraiture to question society and the media’s influence on our lives. The overarching themes of the work are sexuality, performance, male identity and politics. These topics are informed by his personal experience and working life and continually question sexuality and the role we play to our peers.
