Keren Anavy is a New York based multimedia artist working in drawing, painting, installation and performance. Anavy's interdisciplinary process and research-based practice scrutinize issues of the dynamic relationship between nature, culture and site.

Challenging the boundaries of painting and drawing often as a form of installation, Anavy's settings examine broader social contexts through a diversity of imagery, materials and architecture, offers a platform for questioning our environments. In her works she references nature, however stripped down to its abstract form using various materials, include oil paintings, ink drawings, laser cutouts and print, she creates forms that reflect on the boundary between concrete and abstract.
