Artist Statement - Kelly Rossetti
Kelly works abstractly from her feelings and from experiences that have affected him. She has long been enamored with the human form and consistently works towards capturing a certain feeling or emotion that comes from the figure. Whether it be loose and expressive figurative drawings or expressive paintings, she strives to find the beauty of the form. For her non-representational abstract and landscape work, she likes to start with an unpremeditated blank canvas and let the work begin to emerge organically. She continues to build on what appears giving form to the chaos and building the piece into a painting that will hopefully, transmit a feeling to the viewer. She paints to reach the place within her that is free of controls and boundaries and thrive on the challenges of exploring new themes and ideas.
A career in the fashion industry has also influenced her aesthetic approach. As an executive in sales and merchandising, she worked side by side with design to forecast fashion and analyze color and color trends. This exposure and training of continuously evaluating color combinations and coordinating entire collections had directed her color choices and had helped to fine-tune her sense of color.
