Born in Cyprus / Works in Brooklyn
Although Ketta has worked in New York for a while now, the bleeding and blooming of colors in her oil paintings resemble the way water changes everything around it - perhaps the expanses of water that surround her home country Cyprus. Their ambient effect resembles memories as much as it does landscapes, ever moving and receding towards oblivion.
You’ll love Ketta if you: lean your head on the bus widow on a rainy day to see the way raindrops distort passing cityscapes into streaks of light
“My paintings exist in a dream-like state between two worlds creating a fleeting, weightless moment. Their essence migrates between water, sky and land, merging memories of near and far.”
