"The Overgrown Garden", 2017

Escape from Cultivation by anna kell

Virtual Exhibition: June 5 - September 10, 2021

Anna Kell is an artist and instructor at Bucknell University, located in Lewisville, PA. She works in and beyond the traditional boundaries of painting, engaging found materials and surfaces to make dynamic work that critiques dominant cultural attitudes toward nature, gender, and consumerism. Kell states, "My work is motivated by a desire to examine cultural attitudes toward the natural environment. My process often begins with the collection and creative appropriation of decorative domestic cast-offs like sofas, mattresses, and footstools. I am particularly interested in the surface decorations present on such mass-produced objects, especially when they mimic—or are adorned and decorated with—patterns and representations of the natural world.”
