Bio

Kelly Tunstall's portraits are stylized female figures in adapted environments: nests built of painted boards held together by drawn nails or far off planets. The physical form and its accompanying exterior become a mirror for internal thought processes and turmoil. Working in acrylic, collage, spray paint, pencil, pen and ink, gold leaf and some secret sauce, her experimental yet classically grounded works live comfortably in a space between graphic expression, stylized representation, surrealism, and sketch. The patina of age and calligraphic drawing methods lend further depth to her story-filled worlds. She received her BA from California College of Arts and Crafts in 2002.
