Painting a Future
Stoneware clay and glazes on MDF
600 x 600 mm 


Kelly is an emerging artist working out of a ceramic and painting studio she built in her garage in Kensington. Her ceramic works involve clays and glazes that are created on chemistry structure and various lab tests.  Inspiration comes from the forms across society - urban planning designs to architecture and nature. Kelly also finds mindfulness and escapism through painting and enjoys the mystery which a still moment can communicate.

COVID-19 has changed us all - from restricting our freedoms, retail, hospitality & travel shifts, and how we all connect as a society. Our government has a vaccination rollout strategy that aims to  reduce the health, social and economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. Once rollout targets are  achieved, what will our life experiences be on the other side?

The truth is, no one knows. Do we leave this in our past and march forward with a new way of living? Or proceed cautiously through an ongoing cycle of new virus variants, snap shutdowns, and booster shots?
