Arena Gallery is pleased to present Trip Through My Window an exhibition of works by Anna Ketskemety.
Often using personal photography and her early background in architecture as a reference point, Ketskemety's work explores the relationships between the flat surface and her constructs by employing painting as an exploratory method that calls into question the distinction between the painting and the object.
Utilising common materials such as found wood and considered spatial concerns within the creation, composition and placement of all of her works, Ketskemety's paintings and constructs are personal works that become viewpoints - or windows for the artist as well as the viewer, offering a unique perspective of narrative, form and technique.
Themes of home and hospitality are prominent throughout her work from portraits of friends in their homes to her constructs made out of retrieved and consequently modified wood that recall domestic furniture. Her three dimensional works playfully manipulate space using folded planes and panels to create pieces that often contain a hidden surface masked by another element in the work.
