Piece description from the artist
A nude woman rises to greet the day, her back to the viewer, her front facing a flat colorful and mysterious space. The deliberate use of purple in this piece allows viewers to relate the work in a variety of ways due to its high degree of symbolism throughout the world – most commonly expressing feelings of mystery, spirituality, calmness, pride, peace wisdom and passion, among others.
Ben Kelley is a St. Louis-based artist whose work has been featured locally, in various offices and local art fairs, as well as internationally, notably for his cover art published on famed Dutch writer Nescio’s Titaneller.
I'm a fan of both experimentation and variety. Not surprisingly, my paintings often vary in theme from conceptual and meaningful, to colorful and expressive. I enjoy the discovery part of the creative process and how to communicate and connect with viewers through a visual medium. Often times, when I feel that I've accomplished a form of communication in a particular fashion, I end up challenging myself to find a new way to express an idea or emotion. It's this challenge that keeps me motivated and why I know my passion for artistic expression will always fuel my desire to create.
