work by artist Heather Kelly

Dizzys, 230 5th Avenue, Brooklyn
November 3, 2012 – May 5, 2013

Composed predominantly of portraits, Heather’s work shows individuals in various states of emotional exposure. At times benign and at others aggressive, these moments provide a glimpse into some small facet of the depicted figure’s internal workings. These images are not always meant to be interpreted literally; rather, they are the physical manifestations of a struggle, a wish, a passing thought or a plea. These images show moments that are personal and specific to whomever it is being depicted while at the same time connecting with the viewer, intended to rouse some sort of emotional response.

Heather is “attracted to the small moment, the tiny, fleeting things that at once alienate and connect us”.
