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.

Outstanding additions to our portfolio

Our ethos at Modern ArtBuyer is to bring together exceptional art and passionate collectors, so with that in mind we’re excited to have unveiled our latest collaboration.


We’re working closely with the experienced and reputable team at One Church Street Gallery, offering them exposure on our website as a new channel to showcase their well-curated portfolio of artists. We’ve kicked off with the beautifully-observed paintings by Sara Dudman RWA, the collaborative, intriguing abstracts from Robinson & McMahon and the technical brilliance of Ian Robinson. Their work is now available to browse and buy directly through our website and, as always, viewings can be arranged with pleasure.


It’s an inspiring venture for us. We hope you are equally inspired by their exceptional works.
