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.
Ketta Ioannidou is a Cyprus-born artist who works primarily with oil paint to create flowing images that evoke the various energies of the universe. Ioannidou’s paintings and installations have been shown in the number of exhibitions including The Centre of Contemporary Art Diatopos, Nicosia, Cyprus, The Bronx Museum of the Arts, Bronx, New York, the Carriage House at The Islip Art Museum, New York, Heist Gallery, New York, Foxy Production, New York and the Indianapolis Museum of Contemporary Art, Indiana. She represented Cyprus in the 9th International Cairo Biennale, the 24th Alexandria Biennale for Mediterranean Countries, and the Rome Biennale for Young Artists from European and Mediterranean Countries.
