Piece description from the artist
kellyannart.com iconoculture • world view on modern beauty
An art & design study in ‘seeing beauty in what you do’. Articulating the Vatican’s call to artists | A quest for beauty | Ethics & Aesthetics in Art.
After completing kellyannart.com 2010 inertia collection, an art & design study in motion, nature & adornment. My 2011 collection focuses on seeing the beauty in what you do; my study of ethics & aesthetics in art. Through paintings on canvas, & natural photowork, I see this collection in a large modern architectural lobby.
Finding freedom within the limitations is a constant in my work. the discourse on beauty is explored by articulating conceptual abstract expressionism with distinct colorist palettes. I appropriated Marilyn Monroe imagery in this discussion on beauty, and other icons of modern beauty. There is a poetry found in the beauty in each of us. This new public art collection causes the viewer to pause. My work reflects positively on humanity. My artwork is available in limited edition reproductions for public & private collectors. Currently the originals are for exhibition.
