All Stars Need to Shine
These are paintings by my friend Kelly Allen who has been doing some really interesting work for years but has lately gotten some strong traction with these paintings, that are done from collages that she builds first and then painstakingly reproduces with acrylic paint. They are beautiful and strange. I find these pieces interesting in that they keep me coming back to try to understand them and yet they remain completely enigmatic and out of reach of rational thought which is one of my favorite gaps to get caught in.
This will be my last six days a week blog for a month or so. I am digging down into a re evaluation of my art career goals this winter and in doing so I will be taking a vacation from regular blogging and taking that time to explore art blogs, art galleries and museums. Please feel free to share anything of interest you have found and that way we can spread the good news together.
