Gatya Kelly 'The Chymical Wedding'
I look for balance, colour and stillness in the drama. The paintings intend to trigger and expand on the primitive senses of touch, taste and smell. They are solid and embodied. The scale of objects is exaggerated to share a minutely observed personal viewpoint – through magnification, large objects expose their delicacy and small things such as petals and seeds reveal their qualities of transparent reflective beauty.
