Playing With Fire No. 53 (Edgy 7) by Kelly O’Brien for Modern ArtBuyer

Introducing Kelly O’Brien

We’re delighted to welcome Kelly O’Brien to Modern ArtBuyer. Kelly is an American mixed media artist who lives and works near Bath. Kelly is currently pursuing a Master of Fine Art at Bath Spa University with an expected degree award in 2019.

 

Kelly O’Brien has a clear and evident passion for her work, which gives her an exceptional drive to push boundaries and ask questions. We were immediately struck by the refinement and sensitivity of Kelly’s works which explore the volatile relationship between paper and fire, and the unexpectedly beautiful outcomes of combining the two. In her ‘Playing With Fire’ series, Kelly delves deeper into this relationship introducing additional elements : thread, gold leaf, spray paint.
