oil painting
  Website: Kelly Brannon's website  

For the majority of my life I have lived in rural areas. Nature has

become the inherent focus of my work as a result of continued nostalgia

brought about by living and working in the city. I invent landscapes drawn

from memory with a language of repetitive marks and forms, representations

of trees, leaves, grass, flowers, etc. Using a mud-like mixture of beeswax

and oil paint, I often tend to work the canvas with forks, knives and

brushes to create texture and organic surfaces.

My latest series of paintings stem from a trip across country where I made

pastel drawings at night by the limited lighting of a campfire. The result

was that the colors were created only from the basis of what I saw as

contrast. These paintings are loose renditions of those drawings.
