Kelly Moeykens creates mixed media artworks, paintings and sculptures. By focusing on techniques and materials, Moeykens considers making art a craft which is executed using clear formal rules and which should always refer to social reality.
Her mixed media artworks are notable for their perfect finish and tactile nature. This is of great importance and bears witness to great craftsmanship. By choosing mainly formal solutions, she tries to develop forms that do not follow logical criteria, but are based only on subjective associations and formal parallels, which incite the viewer to make new personal associations.
Her works are based on formal associations which open a unique poetic vein. Multi-layered images arise in which the fragility and instability of our seemingly certain reality is questioned. Kelly Moeykens currently lives and works in Midcoast Maine.
