Alice Kelmon: Natural Elements

Aug 18, 2016 to Sep 18, 2016

The works are inspired by Kelmon's relationship with nature and its vast but vulnerable array of occupants. The work is abstract, and includes watercolors, monoprints and encaustics.


Kelmon aims for a fresh and spontaneous expression, and a fascination with these mediums drives her work.

The artist notes, “I love the translucency and sense of impermanence of watercolor, and the experimentation and discovery allowed by the processes of encaustic and monoprint. Many encaustic artists use the medium as a layer to enhance a printed image, whereas I use it as a medium in its own right. Encaustic is especially tactile, and I add wire, paper, metal and wood to create allusions to our delicate and difficult relationship with nature.”
