Making Connection Mixed Media Painting

"One of the characters was inspired by an image of Oscar Wild. I imagined a modern day Oscar Wilde connecting with another poet–a current day James Baldwin. The Golden Gate bridge in the background is iconic, and is there to offer another form of connection, and a setting. I loved adding the rubber to Oscar's boots and lots of sewn parts that add to the idea of connection." ~ Jamie Kelty

The raw materials and meticulous details in Jamie Kelty's collages reflect her memories, history and a crafted world of design. "When I make these art works, I want to give the characters some grounding, memento, or insight that connects the character to the story and visually adds interest, texture, and depth to the composition." ~ Jamie Kelty
