Adam and Eve

Katy Keefe-Neilson

Acrylic on Canvas

My paintings are instinctive; a visceral reaction to the raw vulnerability I listen to every day. I spend most of my waking hours with people; talking, listening, watching with intense curiosity and interest. I intuitively feel them, as they unwrap the innermost secrets with brutal honesty and offer it to me with fragile wings. We explore love, loss, longing, regret, illumination, grief and the inherent need for belonging and understanding. I take these conversations home in my mind and honor the confessional experience with brilliant color, sacred words scrawled beneath the paint, and confidential knowing through a lens of emotion.
