Kedals’ paintings seem to unfold in front of you - the characters, colours and abstract symbols and patterns attempt to engage reflection on a much simpler past. Segments of recognisable icons merge with incomplete calligraphy, traditional sign writing, scribbles and drips. 

In a time when we’re continually bombarded with new forms of entertainment and media; these paintings are constructed with pop cultural points of reference. But they are not merely retrospective - Kedals’ disrupted characters and use of ‘keywords’ are encouraging the viewer to reflect on life, question iconography and take stock of the present. Kedals paintings are about everyones today - when it’s crucial to recognise the value of memory whilst treasuring the moment.
