IS THIS THIS IS…. Kelly Payne
elysium Orchard street studios, 2nd Floor, 34a Orchard Street, Swansea
FRIDAY 7th July, 7pm

Kelly Payne has been the latest Artist in residence at the IS THIS THIS IS Project space throughout June/July.

‘After finishing my MA degree, I wanted to use my time in the project space to experiment; having used mostly photography for the last three years I wanted to investigate different mediums such as paint, installation and text to separate myself and my work from the notion of failing – as in purposely not working towards finished pieces.
Not completing ‘finished pieces’ allows me to investigate different processes and discovering new ways of creating and producing artwork outside of my normal practice’.

Situated in the elysium gallery Orchard Street studios, the project space is used on a monthly basis by selected residency artists and the elysium gallery studios community. The aim is to enable artists to work and experiment towards creating new work in an environment outside of their usual studio practice in preparation for critical discussions within the group. The space enables artists to develop, to build, to take risks, to test and to invite peers to see the work in progress.

Only members of elysium gallery studios and guests are invited to these group discussions.
