Ilana Seati

Ilana Seati’s A Secret World explores the familiar and unfamiliar nature of portraiture and anatomical representation. Her work epitomizes the idea of secrets through an imaginative portrayal of the human figure, where she combines the sense of the real and unreal.

Seati’s artistic manipulation of her subjects expands further into the semi-abstract realm. In this series of studies of the male and female figures on canvas and paper, Seati searches for a greater understanding of the paradoxical world we are living in which is our own invention.

Seati examines the concept of truth and fantasy in her works and, in particular, she looks at the way in which we move across the boundaries of reality and fiction in our lives, suggesting that occasionally figments of our imagination are, in fact, reality and vice versa.
