The World Of Kelly O’Connor


Drawing on the allegory of American consciousness through the use of iconic characters, my work is derived from a combination of memory, fantasy, and pop culture. The mythological characters, built around enduring western cultural ideals, make up much of my subconscious. My work is, to a great extent, about exposing the duality behind thin public façades that we readily embrace.

This artist does a beautiful job of juxtaposing images to create an allegorical view of the ‘American Way’ in society as a sort of false reality facade that media expects us to buy into. I love the way she uses faded colors to create a sort of abandoned photo kind of look, like an artifact uncovered in a time capsule.
