Thursday 21 May, 2015, 7 pm

18, 32, 35; oil on board, 6"x6", 2014

Kellie Romany is an abstract, non-representational, figurative painter interested in bodily representation, materiality, and the history of the painting process. Born in Trinidad, she moved to the United States in the late 1990s. She received a Masters of Fine Arts in Painting from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2011 and a Bachelors of Fine Arts from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2008. Romany has exhibited both in the US and internationally, including Stan McCollum Gallery in Atlanta, Sullivan Galleries in Chicago, Parade Ground Gallery in New York, Amel Bourouina Gallery in Berlin, Germany, and Minninger Gallery in Cologne, Germany.

On Thursday 21 May, at 7 pm, Romany will give a short informal slide presentation on her work at Alice Yard. After the presentation, Romany will engage in a discussion with her mother, Jasmine Loney. While Romany’s work has always dealt with familial narrative, she very rarely speaks to her family about her work. This performance will allow the audience to experience an intimate moment in which the artist exposes herself to the questions of her mother.

All are invited.
