Kelsey Mitchell



While working in paint, graphite, and photography, a main theme in my artwork is the human hand. Working with hands gives me a chance to relate to my audience because we all have hands. We all have created our own history of sorts, no matter if its personally worth putting on paper, presenting it confidently to the world, or even acknowledging it at all.

That's the point. I’m acknowledging mine with confidence on whatever paper sits before me. It is my residue, it is my being. I am blessed to tell my story and i want my audience to pursue their own residue.

Art can be theraputic when we allow ourselves to look inward in order to put something out into the world. Art has been a primitive use of residue in laseux wall paintings. Today, tattoos serve universally as a function of our existence on our own selves. Art is universal, history is universal. We all have a story to tell and its worth every drop of ink, blood, graphite, or paint.
