NATASHA KISSELL - ARTIST INFO

Natasha Kissell's (1978, Johannesburg/South Africa) paintings present fantastical landscapes that can only be born out of the imagination. Kissell looks at dreaming from both younger and mature perspectives. As children we use the house to dream, as adults we imagine the house of our dreams. The paintings all feature aspirational architecture - beautiful utopian visions of houses we would wish to possess but cannot. This desire to accumulate fuels much of what we do, and in some ways, replaces the dreams we have as children which are not for possessions but for happiness in a more abstract form.
