Kelly Gorman | 14th January – 5th February 2011

The Television Travels on a Boat to me

Kelly Gorman is an American born international artist now living in the UK.  Gorman returns toelysium gallery for her first solo show in Wales.

Gorman’s art investigates societal issues of gender, race and cultural stereotype.  Her journalistic approach is communicated through visual disciplines such as photomontage and sculpture rather than the written word. Gorman’s studio space exists as a “collecting point” for everything from the most obscure printed material to objects existing in our everyday popular culture.  The work exposes agendas that are unconsciously at work between an individual’s thoughts and the larger arena of mass media that juxtapose and co-exist within the “Past” with the “Present” that are often appear whimsical in nature.
