In reference to the classical genre of landscape painting, Lena Kellers works revolve around longing for and alienation from natural habitats. Drawing from manipulated photographic imagery, the artist explores questions regarding human perception and the influence of the digitally shaped environments surrounding us. In her paintings, representational depictions combine with allegedly virtual influences, resulting in a pictorial reality of their own.
