Fiveten Studio features Cameron Kelly
'I attempt to create a visual experience both personal and social. My process begins as an exploration of the qualities inherent in found objects and develops as a self-referential posturing between the work and my experience. Working with materials is like an interview of sort - an inner dialogue about identity, form and creative ability. I find mark-making to be an exercise in observation and self investigation. Repetition is a common element in my work. It honors process, documents time, and is a method to finding a personal rhythm.
My inspiration lives in an interdependent world where dream and day-to-day life interplay. Bringing idea to form confirms that our humanness is our ability to make ideas visible. I find comfort in practicing that. I often call upon my staple materials; cast wax, metals,things like hairbrushes or animal bones to stir the intuitive unconscious. I am forever utilitarian considering new mediums and examining the possibilities around me.
