In Kelli Scott Kelley's, Twins and Other Curiosities, she uses her son’s discarded school papers and collages them into her mixed-media drawings. Kelley states, “In culling through the piles of papers I’d kept over the years, I was surprised to find countless wonderful drawings. In some of my pieces, there is a dialog between his doodles and my images.” Kelli Scott Kelley explores humankind’s connections, disconnections and impact upon the natural world by incorporating figures, animals and objects in metaphorical narratives.
