Alicia Kelly was born and raised among the red dirt and wildflowers of northeastern Oklahoma. The country landscape and fauna of the midwest left a deep impression on Kelly that continues to inspire her artwork. In addition, her love of paper, developed alongside her love of Indian textiles and screen-printing, which lead her to the meditative practice of cutting paper.
Alicia´s current proposal for her residency at ´ace, among the SUB30 Program, will take shape through an installation with vinyl and paper cuts, which create shadows that change according to the sunlight.
I have always been fascinated with shadows and light, with the space at ´ace. I would like to utilize the time working on the installation outside, as well as inside. With the use of the sun at all times of the day, I’d like to learn how the shadows change with the angles of the sun in Buenos Aires, and how my piece can organically grow along the changes.
