Inspired by color.
Kelly's New Work was inspired by a recent visit to Japan – in particular –
a visit to Kyoto to see a 60 year retrospective of the art of Yayoi Kusama.
First Thursday @ Sotheby's - August 2, 2018
At: Sotheby's in the Pearl: 1321 NW Hoyt St, Portland, OR 97209
On view will be a body of work from my "Landscape" series.
"I want my art to calm the mind and bring the viewer to the present moment. To allow the viewer to reflect on the landscape and the impact humans have on it. My landscapes, devoid of detail, could represent any place, allowing the viewer to insert their own experiences into the narrative of the painting. By forming a connection of memory to place I hope to create a sense of compassion for the planet we live on."
