Ditty Ketting creates colourful and geometric works of abstraction. Josef Albers’ colour theory and the work of Mondriaan and “De Stijl” have been and continue to be a source of inspiration for the artist.  Although Ditty allows herself to be led by intuition and feeling, she applies rules and strict discipline within the system she chooses to work.  She starts out by making a complete study on paper, where she experiments with the contrasts and harmony of colours originating from her own chromatic circle of colours, as well as the width of the lines which will contribute to the dimensions of the work.  Especially the larger paintings by Ditty Ketting reflect a museum-like quality.
