About

  KELLY GRACE 

 

I am both an artist and designer interested in the significance that emerges between intellect and intuition. Impacted by my upbringing in a blue collar community, my work challenges the precision of machine made versus the grit of manual labor. With instilled values such as practicality and accessibility, I craft objects that posses both qualities of the highly refined and crudely unfinished.  

Often themes of time, degradation/expiration, class level and beauty are approached and speak from my influential experience coming from the middle class. I play with the idea of function in my practice and approach it from an aesthetic and psychological point of view. I believe every interest and fascination has a meaning. You must follow, research and play with those fascinations in order to find the integrity that is hidden.
