LittleBird Gallery is pleased to announce a solo exhibition
by California artist, Kelly Lynn Jones. Growing up in suburban California, Kelly Lynn tackles the complexities
of the decaying connection between nature and man. In a country whose facade
speaks of unity, growth, and wealth the reality is quite the opposite,
revealing isolation, over population, and poverty. Focusing her paintings on
the effects of urban sprawl and the struggle with our sense of community the
artist depicts the relationships between the internal (being one’s home) and
the external (being one’s community) as a crucial component to one’s daily
practice of living. Warehouse buildings that are no longer useful are depicted
rotting away beside pipes that carry water through the neighboring cities. The buildings seem empty and lack a
dialogue with one another, thus representing the false sense of community. Kelly Lynn’s “cities” are a hybrid of daily reality, which parallels a
make believe world that combine all the various components that create an
identifiable city or town.
Kelly Lynn Jones is a graduate of The California College of Arts and Crafts, San Francisco. She is currently
pursuing her MFA and resides in San Francisco.
