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, Kellyann’s 2011 collection focuses on seeing the beauty in what you do; my study of ethics & aesthetics in art. Kellyann writes: 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. I am working to articulate my art as design in product development – first umbrellas!

2010 inertia collection | the motion of matter in art
kellyannart.com 2010 inertia collection |an art & design study in motion, beauty, nature & adornment. I address ethics & aesthetics of the motion & matter in art. The works are positive reflections on our cultural identity. Through paintings on canvas, natural photo work & signature whimsy sculptures, I wanted this collection to move in a large modern lite foyer. Less is more is a constant concept. The installation pieces, paintings & photos compliment one another around the discourse of beauty in art & design with distinct color palettes. In the sculptures, moving around a piece, making a piece move & glimmer was my aim. Lighthouses & the fresnel lense, sparked this fascination with the poetry of timeless solitary art & design. each new public art collection causes the viewer to pause. Studio works in progress below.

kellyannart.com | 2009 white space collection | icons
When I started this year’s collection of 16 abstract paintings for exhibition, my collection muse became white space. In the space between annual collections, is a burgeoning of new information in culture. I am an abstract painter employing random naturalistic methods, with deliberate, intelligent designs and expressions, a creation, not an accident. The physical practice of painting large abstract art & design is my artwork.
In the space between, this year’s presidential process was fodder. E pluribus unum, which is Latin for “Out of Many, One, “ became my response to the power of a women’s thought from viewing the International Museum of Women’s 2008 Exhibition | Women, Power & Politics. I produce ‘many’ artworks to teach ‘ones’ value’ in the practice and production of ones work. I am working to inspire a new generation of creative thinkers.
In this world, I am a woman, mother, daughter, sister, friend, artist & love. Practice acts of love, family, kindness, generosity & faith in creating great things, even if small. Humanity is valuable, when it values honor, grace, integrity. Regardless of ones place, one can choose to do small acts with great love: Mother Theresa,
My art, is my positive reflection on humanity. I work in my art practice toward refinement and commitment. I am a painter, photographer and conceptual artist, using media to produce my archive. Art can put forth ideas of love & beauty. The art world can offer the world these concepts. Art continues to be redefined & defined.
Their titles offer pause for reflection in today’s world on a positive cultural identity:. L to R, Graceful Control,Yes, Love is the Answer.
