Kelly McKernan, possibly my favourite new artist at the moment. The mixed media creations leave me in awe and not wanting to understand how it is that they evoke all the emotions that currently exist...
"Kelly continues to explore her psychological responses to the stresses and struggles of
reality. Much of her work comments on the consequences of using idealism as a coping mechanism
and biological survival tactics. They are each interacting with symbolic elements that represent their respective opponents. In conjunction with the titles of these paintings, delicate metaphors are created
with a purpose to be interpreted on an individual basis by the viewer."
