Wrapt New Town Kelly Wallwork 

Artist Statement

In my studio reused graphics, fabric scraps, construction off-cuts - from the recycling, in the gutters - catch my eye and collect in my mind.
They become cityscapes, mountains & clouds, virus shapes. I am on a collaged journey of paint and print and pattern and thread.
I place real imagery alongside reduced blocks of shape and colour and type, intending to renew interest with the discards of life.

The myriad of print and design that goes into packaging reappears as a mountainous jumble, beautiful & unsettling.
At a distance it's like a colourful landscape of hills, floating islands & coffee cup towers, under a pendulous paper sky -
intriguing, promising, threatening.
