Donna explores in her paintings a postmodern understanding of life, an understanding that emphasizes the fragmented, and often distorted, nature of reality. In this line of thought, where there are different dimensions of truth and multiple layers of identity, traditional views on perception, understanding and knowledge are subverted.

Arno will be exhibiting both original oil on canvas works as well as resized prints of previous originals.
“My art is a social commentary. I delve into the darker topics of everyday life, juxtapositioned with humour and the optimistic use of colour. In my expression I want to be free from the shackles of the self. I paint with oil on canvas. I use a heavy dose of humour, cynicism, anger and happiness as my colour palate and take my themes from the singular subconscious on one end of the scale to the combined energy of collective consciousness on the other.” says Carstens
The exhibition runs from 1st – 13th November 2013.
