Visual artist Kelly Reedy’s
passion for art history and culture has taken her around the world seeking
inspiration. After attaining a Bachelor of Fine Arts / Drawing and Painting;
summa cum laude, from the University of Wisconsin, and after completing a
Harriet Hale Woolley Foundation Scholarship to Paris in 1986 - 1987, she spent a
further decade traveling in Europe, India and the United States. Since 1997. she
has settled in Singapore, and have transformed her female portraits into
goddesses and other universal images. She has a long-standing interest in
medieval icons that has fused with a fascination for Asian folk arts. The latest
body of work displays an original integration of several iconographic
traditions. Reedy shows an astonishing mastery of forms, control of drawing and
love of color in her works.
