Terri Mitchell Kelly - 2019 Artist in Residency
Terri is a multidisciplinary artist who works in a diverse range of mediums including drawing and mixed media. While her work has always been inspired by observing the natural environment, recent work has seen her collaborate more closely with natural materials and nature itself. These developments in her practice have been influenced by her training in Art Therapy and the research she has done into the therapeutic benefits of using natural materials.
“In a world that is constantly changing through increased technology and mass consumerism I am questioning my own connection to the land and what I feel is mankind’s ever growing disconnection from this earth which sustains us.
I work in response to different environments outdoors, working intuitively to create site specific art pieces using natural elements. These are documented through photography and video before been taken apart and the landscape returned to its original condition. This way of working allows me to create art that explores my own relationship with nature and helps me in questioning how I perceive myself; both as an individual and in society”.
