There is an artily sense of familiarity and home that exudes from Kate’s work. I’d love to hang this work in a slick, contemporary, casual dining area. A wall hung banquette upholstered in a pale terracotta coloured leather, a soft grey pedestal table with a Ross Gardam chandelier in black metal hanging above. The domesticity of the subject gives, what could be an austere setting, a homely approachability.

Kate Vella captures everyday objects in this still life with an altered perspective. Her work evokes wonder as to how the assemblage of objects came to be. I can imagine this in a country property where the viewer might imagine if in fact the objects in the artwork may reappear in the next room. An American walnut timber frame would suit, and it could be hung grouped with a collection of other smaller works.
