Nicole Kelly's exhibition of new paintings 'Fragmented Imaginings' combines memory and observations and relationships to place. Meticulously applying paint, like pieces in a puzzle, she examines how time and retelling changes the way an experience is perceived and retold.
Winning the prestigious Brett Whiteley Travelling Art Scholarship 2009, Kelly has been a finalist in awards including the Wynne Prize, Redlands Art Award, Tattersalls Art Prize, Black Swan Prize and Portia Geach Memorial Award. She undertook the AADK Spain Residency Program in 2016, the Bundanon Trust Artist Residency in 2015 and the Cite Internationale Des Arts Residency 2010 and was recently honoured with a solo exhibition at Hazelhurst Regional Gallery.
