    Working across painting, cut paper collage and digital media, Odeta Xheka keeps a firm eye on the very thin line that divides sincerity of expression from sheer banality in order to build a body of work that is both sensitive and cerebral in order to stand up against a culture that likes things simple and pigeonholed.Xheka's story parallels the highs and lows that countless women artist face as they negotiate the demands of daily pressures of the family with the aspiration to make ambitious art.
