Natasha Kissell (b.1978) is an English painter, living in Brighton. She primarily paints with oil on canvas or aluminium.
Kissell’s paintings depict modernist architecture set in imaginative landscapes, which effuse aspiration and radiate wonderment. Whether it is a man-made structure or the delicate details of the natural world, her paintings act like beautiful utopian visions which reflect human solitude in a majestic nature.
Inspired by Caspar David Friedrich’s romantic allegorical landscapes, among others, Kissell appropriates elements from eras of art history to depict her sublime realms. Reinventing traditional landscape painting, Kissell discloses whimsical and curious worlds.
Her work was featured in 'No New Thing Under the Sun' at the Royal Academy at Art, London (2010) and she was also included in the exhibition 'Painting the Glass House: Artists Revisit Modern Architecture' in 2008 and 2009 at The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, Connecticut, Yale School of Architecture Gallery, and Mills College Art Museum in California.
