Kels (Kelly) O’Sullivan is an emerging artist with a background in design and illustration. Living and working in Victor Harbor, SA, her natural coastal surroundings of the Fleurieu Peninsula are a constant source of inspiration. Influenced by the discipline of modernism, pattern & textile design of the mid century, her work is a diverse and constant evolution. Symbolising relationships with everyday forms, expressing emotion, reflecting experiences and surroundings through the use geometry, colour, pattern, line and repetition. She is especially interested in the beauty of the abstracted form and enjoys deconstructing shapes to create beautiful, balanced and emotive compositions.
Her current series explores a juxtaposition of solid shapes and fine repetitive mark-making, with references to geometry, both in nature and built environs: a combination of pure simple forms vs repetition, line and complexity. Aside from her fine art pursuits, Kels is an award-winning illustrator and graphic designer and welcomes collaborations and commissions.
