KELLY MATHEWS ARTIST STATEMENT
My work is a visual reaction to our absurd inability to relate to each other simply as human beings. We inherently register race, sex, age and ethnicity before we delve beneath the surface to the core of who someone IS.
By working with encaustic I am able to build many layers, just as there are many layers to every one of us. As you move closer and look deep you are able to see the whole picture, just as you must get to know someone on the inside to truly know who they are.
