Kelly Best creates landscapes and spaces using a variety of mediums including paint, coloured pencil and photography. Kelly often uses architectural structures as a starting point for her work.
Kelly works by extracting ideas from her own photographs and found images, and incorporates them into her work using collage until they respond and create a new identity. Tangible boundaries, combined with simple use of line and colour form a playful engagement with perspective that she finds both interesting and challenging.
Kelly studied a BA in Fine Art at Kingston University. She has exhibited widely including Y Lle Celf at The National Eisteddfod of Wales in Denbigh (2013), and the John Moores Painting Prize in Liverpool (2012).
