Award winning photographic artist Kellie North produces new series of painterly images merging traditional photography with embroidery in a show entitled Going Deeper. The exhibit will take place at ArtWorld Gallery from 29 April to 25 May.
Kellie fell in love with photography in all of its forms in 2001. Earning her stripes on film, Kellie graduated with formal qualifications from The Photographic Institute of Australia where she found the direction she wanted to take with her photography and discovered her voice as an artist.
Today Kellie merges traditional photographic techniques with digital art to produce images often described as visual poetry which are highly emotive, whimsical and evocative. “Going Deeper is a body of work I created over a period of 15 months. Each individual image is of a female, reflective of myself, lying dormant in a body of water, weightless and free, purposefully photographed from above to allow the viewer the feeling of staring down at themselves into their own reflection.”
