Reviving past traditions, KELLEY HAGEMES is an artist flirting with the sublime. Working primarily in oil paint and graphite, she examines her world, visible and invisible, through allegory, symbolism. Using her own children, geometric shapes, halos, fleshy beings, patterns, various beasts and creatures, she is creating an otherworldly realm with its own set of emblems, mythology and superstitions. Hagemes incorporates a darker side of nature with a soft and subtle sensitivity, blurring the lines of what one perceives as beauty.
