Kelli Vance
Kelli Vance, Honey, 2012; oil on panel (portrait, photorealist painting)

2012

$1,000

About

Kelli Vance's process involves staging a scene, frequently using herself as the protagonist, then taking photographs that will become studies for the final work. Two small studies, both titled Honey, 2012 revisit a much larger portrait from 2009 where she poured honey at the crown of her head; here, with Marylin Minter-esque cropping, Vance captures the ooziness of the liquid now trickling past her nose and over her mouth. In her paintings, the operative tension between a seductive surface and an obscured narrative intentionally keeps the viewer at arm's length. Apropos of isolation, the sitters often seem worlds away.
