In her expressive, surreal paintings, Kelly Turley explores and reveals scenes evolved from a place of non-hesitancy. Driven by the belief that painting spontaneously unveils hidden realities, Kelly intuitively chooses which images to bring to light while allowing others to remain ominous within the shadows. Conflict is evident in her paintings as well, as emerging imagery of opposing qualities and emotion are mirrored in the high contrast in color. Kelly invites the viewer to use their own imagination when viewing her work to elicit their own truths.
