Rob Kettels is an 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, such as the historic division between geology and organic Life. Kettels’ artworks, materials and research draw from the journeys he undertakes into geographically remote and contested areas in Western Australia. His practice includes sculpture, assemblage, audio-video-sound and painting. 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 which he is currently undertaking.
