A selection of recent paintings by Maltese artist Anna Calleja. Exploring what she describes as “the comfort and melancholy of home,” Calleja uses the processes of painting and printmaking to create quiet moments of introspection. “My work is a way for me to look back on my own notions of comfort to confront an anxious present and grapple with an uncertain future,” she explains. “My research lies in the dissonance in between dualities: nostalgia/uncertainty, isolation/connection, physical/online worlds, comfort/pain, safety/danger, private/public, looking/being viewed.”
