These eye-catching neon assemblages are the work of Kelsey Kimmel. Kelsey investigates human interactions with digital space and uses synthetic materials to create bizarre, almost alien forms and sculptures in the context of the gallery.
Kelsey’s sculptures are incredibly tactile, and I imagine it would be hard to refrain from reaching out to touch them, looking at them in person! The fact that they are irregularly shaped means that a viewer must walk all the way around them, looking at them from every possible angle, to see everything about them. Using materials such as Styrofoam, plaster, latex, cardboard and foam, the artist’s sculptures have the feeling of industrial detritus turned cyberpunk, becoming synthetic monoliths.
In Isolated Infinite, a recent exhibition, Kelsey created her strange, tactile sculptures and then projected images on to them, altering the colours and the landscape of the installation. See photos of this work and more at www.kelseykimmelart.com.
