Rob Kettels is an interdisciplinary artist based in Perth, Australia. His art practice addresses specific slippages and failures, concerning the ways in which the environment is perceived in ‘Western’ culture, notably the artificial ordering and systematic classification of ‘nature’. He is currently interested in the intersection between organic Life and geology. Kettels’ artworks, materials and research draw from the journeys he undertakes into geographically remote areas in Western Australia. His practice includes ephemeral sculpture, assemblage, installation, audio-video and photography. In 2017, Kettels received a Bachelor Degree in fine art (First Class Honours) from Curtin University, and in 2018 was the recipient of a Curtin University postgraduate research scholarship.
