KELLY ROSSETTI

SENSE OF PLACE 

JUL 3 - AUG 4, 2022

"I believe there is a natural longing for a sense of place in humans. Figurative work gives me the ability to strip away some of our everyday disguises and masks like clothes and personality, and edge my subjects closer to their true sense of place.

 

I have the opportunity to do that in my work every time I pick up the brushes. I can decide how close or how far each subject is from their center and try to reflect that in their expressions. That's some of the beauty in it for me."

Kelly Rossetti is a contemporary abstract and figurative painter based out of Westport, CT. While primarily self-taught, she studied classical oil painting at a small Atelier in NYC where she credits getting her foundation and love of the figure.
